Police Blotter: 3 Odd Animal Calls; Neighbor Complains About Halloween Music

The following information was provided by the Strongsville police department


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.

Also on Sunday, the Cleveland Metroparks called to say someone had tied a rottweiler-boxer mix to a tree and left it.

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.

Loud Boom

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.

Not Mail

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.

It's a shame that neighbors have to resort to calling the cops for simple things such as music being to loud.

For one night out of the year, most people can be tolerant of Halloween doings. Personally, wish you were in our neighbor hood as that looks like one dramatic display of ghoulish fun!

I can honestly say that is the best halloween display I have ever seen. You would fit in perfectly on my street at xmas time (the xmas street here in Strongsville/Chandler Commons). And just so you know, we go through the same stuff with one neighbor in particular as far as calling the police. But it is all worth it when you see the looks on the childrens faces - as well as the senior citizens who come through by the bus load. Great job!

They did an awesome job! Thank for all the hard work and extra effort for everyone to have a fun night!
