Bones Found; Odd Theft; Teen Living in Pool House: Police Blotter

The following information was provided by the Strongsville police department


A passerby found some "suspicious bones" in a culvert on Royalton Road Feb. 13.

A report said they seemed to be animal bones, but police called in the animal warden to be sure.

They Stole What?

A Whitney Road resident heard a loud bang about 1:30 p.m. Feb. 12, then discovered someone had taken the sewer grate in front of the driveway.

Police called the Service Department to erect cones so passing motorists -- and especially the postal carrier -- wouldn't hit the hole.

The 3-by-3-foot culvert grate was valued at $150 to $200.

Teen Sleeping by Pool

An employee at Towers at Falling Water found an 18-year-old sleeping in the pool house -- again -- on Feb. 11.

It's the second time he's found the teen in there.

When police arrived, the sleeper had fled, awakened by someone going into the exercise room.

Suspicious Person

A dad dropping off his child on Beechwood Lane saw a man walk out from the side of the house, continue toward Drake and go into a deli.

He then walked back to Beechwood. The man was in his 40s, wearing jeans and a tan jacket.

The dad asked police to check the neighborhood.

Tax Fraud

A Tradewinds Drive man got a call from the IRS about his 2012 return, but he told police he hasn't filed it yet.

A report said it appears someone had used his information to file a tax return.

No refund had been sent yet, according to the IRS.
