Police Blotter

By Travis Raymond

Stolen ignition

On Sept. 28, a Cleveland State student parked his vehicle in Lot 80 at approximately 2 a.m.  When he returned to the vehicle Oct. 4, the ignition was removed in an attempt to steal the car and the glove box was emptied onto the floor in front of the passenger seat.  DVDs were missing from the backseat.  The student reported that the vehicle’s doors had not been locked.

Vanished vehicle

On Sept. 29, a Cleveland State student parked his father’s white 2000 Chrysler Town and Country in Lot 80 at approximately 8 a.m.  He returned at 4 p.m. Oct. 5 to find the vehicle missing from the lot.  The student reported that the vehicle’s doors had been locked.  The Cleveland State Parking Department confirmed that the car had not been towed.

Call to police backfires

Campus police responded to Lot 80 at 11 p.m. Sept. 30 in reference to the report of a verbal altercation between a man and a woman.  When they arrived, a woman not affiliated with the university reported that the rear window of her vehicle had been broken and the perpetrator had thrown her to the ground and stomped on her.  She said he then took her car keys and drove away.  The woman was checked and cleared by Cleveland EMS while a driver of a car matching the description she gave was stopped nearby.  The driver threw the woman’s car keys out the passenger window, but denied having any physical contact with the woman.  The man reported that the woman had followed him into the lot and that he took her keys because she had damaged his car.  There were no witnesses or security cameras in the area.  The man and woman were checked for warrants, and police arrested the woman for an outstanding warrant in Middleburg Heights.  The woman did not press charges against the man.

Stolen ignition part II

On Oct. 1, a Cleveland State student parked her vehicle in Lot 80 at around 6 p.m.  She returned to her vehicle Oct. 5 to find a back window open.  The ignition had been removed and the contents of the vehicle were on the floor.  The student reported that the vehicle’s doors had been locked and the windows closed.
