“In the summer of 2016, Bay Village and surrounding cities were plagued by a spree of stolen automobiles, burglaries and vehicles entered. On 12/20/2016, Hermon Toney (a 30 year old, white male Cleveland resident) was sentenced to 5 years in prison for his actions. This plea/sentence clears up all but a couple of the related Bay Village cases from this past summer. It is believed Bay Village Detectives will be able to charge Toney with at least one more Burglary/Vehicle theft within the next couple of months. His co-conspirator, Peggy Kaszei, is still at large and has an outstanding warrant for her arrest. Please do not approach Kaszei. If you have information about her whereabouts, please contact the Bay Village Detective Bureau at 440-871-1234.
