Police find packages of suspected marijuana in OVI suspect’s car: North Olmsted Police Blotter




OVI: Great Northern Boulevard

An officer at 3:23 a.m. on Sept. 24 spotted a car traveling on Great Northern Boulevard with an expired license plate.

The officer stopped the car on Lorain Road as it pulled into a parking lot. The driver had glassy, red eyes, according to a police report. She also slurred her speech and smelled of an alcoholic beverage.

The woman said she had open containers of alcohol in the car. Officers located multiple packages of small amounts of suspected marijuana, according to the police report. A folded-up dollar bill in the woman’s pocket had a small amount of a white powder coming out of it, but the amount recovered was too small to test, according to a police report.

The woman admitted to having one drink, the report said. However, she had difficulty performing field sobriety tests. A breath test indicated she had a blood alcohol level of 0.134.

The woman was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated, driving with expired plates, and not wearing a seatbelt, according to the police report.

Theft: Brookpark Road

Officers charged a woman with petty theft by shoplifting after a Walmart loss prevention employee told police officers at 12:35 p.m. on Sept. 17 that she witnessed the woman conceal multiple items of merchandise in her purse while in the automotive aisle.

The woman went through a self-checkout register and never scanned the concealed items, according to the police report.

Passing a school bus: Dover Center Road

An officer at 3:20 p.m. on Sept. 20 spotted a silver SUV passing a stopped North Olmsted school bus as it was discharging students on Dover Center Road south of Lorain Road.

The bus was stopped, its red lights were on, and a red stop sign was extended from the vehicle, according to the police report. The bus driver sounded her horn as the passing SUV.

The officer stopped the SUV on Butternut Ridge Road. The female driver said she didn’t see that the stopped bus was discharging students and she didn’t understand why the bus driver blew her horn as she passed.

The woman was cited for passing a stopped school bus.

Pokemon theft: Brookpark Road

Walmart security called the police department at 4:04 p.m. on Sept. 20 to report two men had just left the store on foot, and they were suspected of taking merchandise.

Officers located one of the suspects, who was wearing a beanie hat, in a nearby parking lot off Country Club Boulevard.

Officers identified the second suspect through the license plate on his car, which both men had arrived in. The male owner of the car later turned himself in at the police station.

A Walmart loss prevention officer said she witnessed both men concealing Pokémon cards in their clothing before leaving the store. One suspect was accused of taking $71.96 worth of cards and the other of taking $49.98 worth of cards. Both men were charged with petty theft.

Criminal damaging: Lorain Road

Officers at 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 20 responded to a condominium unit on Lorain Road regarding a report of a male damaging a vehicle with a BB gun.

A mother and daughter were at home, and they share the use of the damaged vehicle, according to a police report. The mother saw a man known to her carrying a BB gun through the parking lot, as he frequently does, and as he walked past her car, she heard a loud bang.

The woman ran outside and found her taillight broken out, and the man had run away, according to the police report.

The women stated the man has been tormenting them, usually with his BB gun, and has shot the windows of their condo, has shot their TV in an attempt to break it, has shot the entry door to their condo, sent demeaning text messages, and damaged the tires to their car.
