Police Blotter: Workers Beg Door-to-Door for Food; Car Break-Ins
The following information was provided by the Strongsville police department
Two residents on Ridge Creek Road called police March 4 about a man and boy knocking on their door and asking for money for food.
They told one resident about noon they had been left in the area to remodel a house on Woodleaf and had no money for food.
Another Ridge Creek resident reported a similar encounter about 6 p.m.
Police tracked down the pair, who were staying at the Woodleaf house overnight while remodeling it.
They were advised not to knock on any more doors.
Vehicles on two streets were broken into the night of March 3.
On Kylemore Drive, someone went into an open garage and ransacked the three vehicles inside.
And on Ashford Court, two pocket knives valued at $50 were taken from an unlocked car.
Lost in Strongsville
Police gave a Brook Park man a ride home about 5:30 a.m. March 4 after finding him walking near the city service garage.
The man said he'd had a fight with his girlfriend about 11 p.m. the previous night and had been walking around, lost, ever since.
Why is Taxi Door Open? Oh
Police stopped to help a taxi on Webster Road at Albion Road about 2:45 a.m. March 4 after seeing it stopped with a passenger door open.
The driver said he had intoxicated passengers and pulled over for one to vomit.
Safe, Not Suspicious
An Echo Drive woman got nervous March 2 when a vehicle pulled over on her street, then left quickly when she pulled out.
Police traced the car to the driver's wife, who said her husband always pulls over when he gets a cell phone call.
