Police Blotter: TV's So Loud Neighbors Can Hear It; Mini-Balloons in the Trees

The following information was provided by the Strongsville police department

The TV was blasting so loud at a Shale Brook Way home that neighbors could hear it at 11:45 p.m. Sept. 2, a report said.

Police banged on the door, but couldn't get the resident to answer until dispatchers called -- three times -- and finally got a response. 

It was not the first time police have been called to the house for noise complaints, the report said.

The officer was about to write a citation, but the man said he was moving out of state soon and it wouldn't happen again. 

Police told the man to close his windows. 

Hmmm, Think It's a Prank?

A young child called 911 Aug. 31 and said he saw a man with a mask and sacks of money, then hung up.

When dispatchers called back, an answering machine picked up.

Police spoke with a woman at the house, who said her 8-year-old son had friends over. She said she would speak with them.

Balloons Over Strongsville

A resident reported Sept. 2 that someone released about 10 mini-hot-air balloons into the air.

One crashed into a tree on Saratoga Trail. When an officer climbed up to retrieve it so he could investigate where it came from, he broke a branch from the tree.

He left a note for the homeowner explaining what happened.

It Doesn't Work Like That

Police stopped a car on Pearl Road Sept. 1 after noticing that the license plates weren't registered to that vehicle.

He wasn't cited, though, because it turned out the plates were registered to another vehicle owned by the man's father and the officer figured there was a mix-up.

The driver called later to explain that his parents had bought plates for both their cars, and his mom asked his dad which ones he wanted, and he picked the number he liked better for his car.

No Begging

A shopper at Walmart said a man was asking people for money to pay for his groceries about 9 p.m. Sept. 2.

Police located the man and warned him if he was caught soliciting for money, he would be arrested.
