best of the blotter 23

SUSPICIOUS SITUATION, ELLSWORTH DRIVE: Motorists reported June 14 that a group of children who set up a Kool-Aid stand in their neighborhood were not providing the best customer service.

The motorists reported that the children were yelling at cars to stop and buy their cold drinks. If cars didn’t stop, the children began yelling obscenities at them.

The children and their mother denied the allegations.

SUSPICIOUS SITUATION, PROSPECT ROAD: An anonymous caller reported Saturday that there was a large marijuana plant growing in front of a business on Prospect Road.

The caller said the marijuana plant was in a planter outside the business, but he had never seen anyone tending the plant. Officers did find a marijuana plant that was 8-10 feet tall outside the business.

No one was at the business at the time, so the officers took the marijuana plant and destroyed it. Police are investigating the incident.

BURGLARY, NEWELL ROAD: A resident told police June 24 that a man broke into his home and stole $50, three cell phones and nine bags of suspected marijuana. A Cleveland man, 32, was arrested.

BAND BLAST, SHAKER: Maybe it was the real life version of Garage Band. A caller notified police that a Shaker Drive resident had a band in his garage and they were playing their music too loud around 9:25 p.m. June 14. Police responded and informed the resident of the complaint.

FIGHT, VAN AKEN BOULEVARD: A fight broke out Friday at the library, 16500 Van Aken, between a patron and an employee. There were no arrests.

LOST CHILD, TRENTON AVENUE: Residents reported Saturday night that there was an unusual party crasher at a graduation reception.

The residents called police after a 3-year-old boy wandered into the party around 9:30 p.m. and proceeded to “make himself at home.”

Police discovered that the boy had walked from his backyard on Dorchester Circle to the party. He was reunited with his parents.

MEDINA An unknown person broke into a Dawn Court apartment June 25 through the front window of the residence. The individual allegedly removed the screen, crawled in through the window and took an Elvis Presley doll. Police have no suspects in the case.

RELIGIOUS DISCUSSION, N. ELMWOOD: Police responded to a N. Elmwood Ave. location upon report of a disturbance at the home. Upon arrival, an officer spoke with two men who were arguing in the front lawn of the home around 11:30 p.m., June 26. The two men were apparently engaged in a debate about religion.

ANIMALS, MARSOL ROAD: A hysterical 911 call came in June 21 from a woman who lost her dog on an elevator. Responding officers located the dog that had gotten off on a different floor. The owner was reunited with the dog and all was well.

COMPLAINT, MADISON AVENUE: At 8:54 p.m. June 23, a resident saw a man walking with a gun on Madison Avenue. The man had a key chain that was mistaken for a gun. Police advised the man.
