Sometime Strongsville police go beyond the call of duty to help a distraught resident.
Here's what happened at 3:20 a.m. May 4:
Someone called 911 from Raccoon Trail, a report said. A dispatcher heard yelling before the call disconnected. Callbacks weren't answered.
Police have to follow up on 911 hang-ups, so they went to the address, where they found an intoxicated woman who was upset that she couldn't find her purse.
She told officers a Royalton Road man had just dropped her off and she may have left it in his car.
So they went to the man's address and looked in the car to see if they could see it inside. Sure enough, there was a pink purse in there.
The woman confirmed it was hers and officers retrieved it. By 4 a.m., the woman and her pink purse were reunited, a report said.
