Agents Confiscate Computers from Greenbrier Drive Home

Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force executes search warrant Wednesday morning

Police officers and agents from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force executed a search warrant Wednesday morning at a Greenbrier Drive home.

Neighbors said the officers carried out computers, disks and what appeared to be boxes of files.

No charges have been filed against anyone who lives at the house.

Maria Russo, spokeswoman for Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason's office, confirmed that ICAC was on Greenbrier Drive, but could not comment further because the matter is pending.

But a neighbor said about seven vehicles, most unmarked, arrived on the street at 7 a.m. and officers wearing body armor and carrying battering rams went into the house. 

They stayed about two hours, said the neighbor, who declined to give his name.

He said the family at the house, a retired couple with grown children, has lived there about 35 years. 

Because police and prosecutors have not made an arrest, Strongsville Patch is not yet identifying the house or the family.

Mason's website says ICAC targets people who use the Internet to lure minors into illicit sexual relationships; or use the Internet to produce, distribute or solicit child pornography.

James Yes I talked in great length Jim Rodstrom , He did say that the guardrail is NOT an official trailhead (which we all knew) and YES all walkers and bikers are allowed to enter the metropark at the deadend, ...he said that grass was planted but eventually a path will get worn from repeated use (he asked if everyone can try to reuse same spots) he said he will try to call sam this week as to what he is unhappy with now ...he said he talked to sam 4th of july weekend and everything was fine ... jim had said that sams only problem was with parking on the street (all agree the street is too narrow) but now it seems that he does not want to allow people riding past his house

Sooo what ever happened with this? The raid, not the Metroparks stuff. This guy getting arrested or what? Don't see how someone can have all this stuff taken away, house raided by a special task force,... and that's it.

Looks like the guy was finally indicted after a 7 month investigation. Here's the Patch article from yesterday: http://strongsville.patch.com/articles/2-strongsville-men-charged-for-child-pornography

Gee thanks Debbie for staying on top of this. There is other news in Strongsville besides the strike. Bruce Mazur changed his plea from not guilty to guilty yesterday. He's court docket says he was in negotiations with the state for quite some time, continually rescheduling his court date. Then yesterday he was found guilty on 80+ charges and will have to register as a Tier II sex offender. I'm wondering what the regulations are on that considering he lives on a park (don't mean the Metroparks but rather the Greenbrier Lake Association). He's sentencing is scheduled for 4/23.
