Police Blotter: Kids Dancing in the Street; Neighbor Won't Give Back Football
The following information was provided by the Strongsville police department
Police were called to Hunting Meadows Drive Nov. 10 after a neighbor halted a football game.
A resident, who said he was hosting a birthday party for his son, said the boys were playing football in the back yard and the ball landed in the neighbor's yard.
The man wouldn't give it back, a report said.
Police got the ball returned. The resident said he would try to keep the kids away from the neighbor's yard.
Witnesses called police to Weymouth Lane and Saratoga Trail about 10:40 p.m. Nov. 9 after seeing a black car with kids standing nearby, dancing in the street and smoking.
The three weren't dancing when officers arrived, but admitted they had been earlier.
Police called their parents to pick them up.
A Drake Road woman feared a burglar was in her house because she found the front door open about 10:45 p.m. Nov. 11.
The woman didn't notice the front door open when she arrived home, but a short time later, found it standing wide open.
She said an intruder may have run out as she came in.
Nothing was missing from the house. Police said it's also possible the door blew open or the woman's kids had come by and left it open.
