Theft, fraudulent use of credit cards (felony): Orange Place
Police responded to Slyman’s Tavern on the afternoon of Jan. 3, where they met with a Bedford Heights woman who said she had used her CashApp credit card to make a to-go purchase shortly after noon. After leaving, she got an alert that someone had subsequently made two unauthorized purchases on her card of $62 and $50.
That’s when she realized she did not have the card.
Officers reviewed video that showed a Cleveland woman, 29, working the counter and making the fraudulent purchases, which she initially denied. She then admitted making the purchases after being taken to the police station, saying she was hungry.
She also said she had left the victim’s credit card in the cash register, although police did not find it there.
The case was forwarded to detectives and the village prosecutor to seek a direct felony indictment from a Cuyahoga County grand jury, with the suspect getting a courtesy ride to Pinecrest.
Suspicion: Lander Road
A woman called police, then met officers at the station around 2:15 p.m. Jan. 8, saying she had been over in the adjacent Orange Village Community Park where she had been followed, approached and made to feel uncomfortable by a man believed to have arrived in a black Toyota Highlander.
She said there had been four separate incidents and requested special attention to the area.
Improper display of license plates, driving under suspension, warrants: Orange Place
A Shaker Heights man, 25, driving north in a 2002 Pontiac Sunbird, was stopped at 9:30 a.m. Jan. 5 after an officer could not see a visible license plate, which turned out to be lying flat in the dark-tinted back window.
The man presented police with a state I.D. copy, admitting that his license was suspended. He was cited and advised about three active warrants elsewhere.
Found property: Orange Place
Police responded to the Extended Stay North Jan. 5, where management turned over a loaded Glock 9mm handgun that a Sidney, Ohio, man, 56, had accidentally left in his room when he checked out on Dec. 30.
He was supposed to pick it up the next day at the motel, but had not. The manager was no longer able to keep it, so the owner came by the police station a short time later and got it.
