COMPLAINT? A man entered the Medina Police Station on May 29 and asked if anyone had recently filed a complaint against him. Officers informed him that no one had made a complaint.

SUSPICIOUS, TANGLEWOOD MALL: Police received two calls after a 62-year-old man visited several businesses over the course of several hours the evening of June 3.

The Cleveland man asked female employees to go out on a date with him and told one he would take her to the Bahamas.

Police located him in his car in the parking lot. He was told to leave and not return or he would face trespassing charges.

The man told police he was in the shopping plaza to pick up a prescription.

There are some incidents of high quality here, though angry squirrels, if they ever organized, could prove to be a serious threat.
