Breaking and entering

Church barn broken into: After police responded to a report that a shed behind a church in North Munroe Road's 200 block had been broken into during the early evening June 4, they found that a latch and padlock had been pried open. Nothing was reported missing.

Equipment and tools stolen: A man reported June 3 that someone removed a lock on his shed outside his home in Newton Street's 1200 block and took a lawn mower, a leaf blower and some tools totaling about $4,800 in value while he was away during the previous two days.


Meat stolen from store: The manager of a store in West Avenue's 600 block reported May 30 that an unknown male could be seen on store video concealing tenderloin packages totaling about $100 in value in his jacket and leaving the store without paying for them earlier that morning.

Money withdrawn from bank account: A West Avenue woman reported May 29 that someone deposited nearly $4,200 into her bank account, then withdrew the money plus an additional $408 during the previous week. The woman said her bank requested she file a police report.

Criminal damaging

Water balloon thrown at vehicle: A Beechwood drive woman reported that while she was driving on East Howe Road at Atwater Drive at about 1:45 p.m. May 29, she saw an unknown male standing up in the sunroof of an approaching vehicle and as the vehicles passed each other, he threw an object at her windshield, causing unspecified damage. Police said they determined the object had been a water balloon.

Control of dogs

Dog attacked: A Norton Drive man, 57, was cited with control of dogs after a Tallmadge woman reported that while she was walking her husky dog past the man's home at about 9:10 a.m. May 27, the man's two pitbull dogs ran out and attacked her dog. The pitbulls dragged the husky about four houses down the street before letting the dog go, the woman said. Police said the woman took the husky to an animal hospital, where the dog was treated for a bite wound near his right shoulder.

Police said an investigation determined that the pitbulls, who were caught by the man's son, had escaped from the man's fenced back yard. The man contacted the woman to make arrangements to pay for the veterinarian bill, police said.
