Three unusual calls about animals came in to Strongsville police over the weekend.
On Saturday, employees at Journey's at SouthPark Mall called about 10 a.m. to say there was a bird in the store and security was unable to help.
They called back a few minutes later to say the bird had left.
On Sunday, a Chestnut Drive resident reported a skunk in the dryer vent.
Ghouls Gone Wild
A "haunted" house on Pine Tree Place disturbed a neighbor, who said the loud Halloween music was disturbing him about 5:30 p.m. Sunday.
Police said the music was a little loud and spoke with the homeowner, who agreed to turn it down.
The report also noted that the house had a very nice Halloween display and the neighborhood kids were enjoying it.
A resident on Ellsworth Drive reported hearing a loud boom about a dozen houses away early Sunday.
The noise was reported about 12:40 a.m.
Police checked the area, but found nothing out of the ordinary.
A resident of The Bluffs complained Saturday evening that a dark-colored car was going mailbox-to-mailbox and someone was putting political information inside.
It's illegal to put items like that in mailboxes, the caller said.
Police couldn't locate the vehicle.
