Caller Wants Amish People Checked Out; Bullets Found in Donation Bin: Police Blotter

The following information was provided by the Strongsville police department

 

An anomymous caller reported an Amish man and child at the corner of Drake and Pearl roads about 10 a.m. Feb. 7.

The woman said there was no horse and buggy around, and it was cold for such a young child to be out.

Police spotted the pair waiting for a bus. The man had a very nice jacket on (probably woven from scratch, the report said), and the boy was nicely dressed and said he was fine.

They boarded the bus just before 11 a.m.

Uh, Thanks But No Thanks

Workers at the Salvation Army store on Pearl Road came across an unusual donation in their bin Feb. 5 -- plastic-tipped bullets from the 1960s.

They gave them to the police to be disposed of.

A Shopping Spree on His Card

Someone apparently went out for a day on the town in Miami Feb. 1, using a North Inlet Drive man's credit card.

A report said the car was used for $623 at a gas station, vending machine, Publix, Walgreens, Payless Shoes, Cheesecake Factory and Old Navy.

Cool it With the Boom Booms

A Stoughton Drive woman heard three loud booms upstairs Feb. 7 and feared somene had gotten into the house.

Police found no one hiding on the second floor, but they did find an open window that had probably been open for awhile. There were no tracks in the snow around the house.

Suspicious Person

A Sartoga Trail resident said a suspicious man has been hanging around the neighborhood for the last few weeks.

The woman told police Feb. 5 the man, who is in his 20s, sometimes walks around with a shovel and asks people if they want their sidewalks cleared, even if they snow has already been removed.

Police said they would keep an eye out for him.

It's also a ploy for people to get close to your house to see if someone is home. Then they break in. If somebody is asking to shovel a drive w/o snow, I would be worried.

If you see suspicious persons in your neighborhood, do what Vice President Joe Biden suggested here: "If you want to protect yourself, get a double barrel shotgun. Have the shells for a 12 gauge shotgun, and I promise you, as I told my wife—we live in an area that’s wooded and somewhat secluded—I said, Jill, if there’s ever problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out, put that double-barreled shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house. I promise you whoever’s coming in is not going". Whaaa? Way to go Joe Biden. I am serious, he actually suggested that as a course of action for his wife and other potentially nervous home owners. Just Google "Joe Biden Shotgun". Plenty out there, compliments of our VP.

Additionally, NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam tells the Post that following Biden’s advice in the vice president’s home state of Delaware could result in charges for aggravated menacing, reckless endangering and violating the hunting “safety zone” law. (Don't try this stupid stunt in Strongsville either).
