Weapons offenses

Gun found in vehicle: An Olmsted Township man, 49, was charged with third-degree felony weapons under disability and fourth-degree felony charges of carrying concealed weapons and improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle and cited with marked lanes after police stopped his vehicle on Interstate 480 westbound for the marked lanes violation at about 10:25 p.m. June 5. Police said that after they smelled an odor of marijuana coming from the man’s vehicle and police K-9 Caesar indicated the possible presence of narcotics, they found a loaded 9 mm pistol the man is not allowed to possess because of a prior felony conviction and a trace amount of suspected marijuana in the vehicle. The man was taken to Solon City Jail.


Man reports possible scam: A Twinsburg man reported June 5 that after someone contacted him offering payment in exchange for placing advertisements on his vehicle, he was sent a check for nearly $1,000 and asked to return a portion of it in gift cards. The man said he suspected it to be a scam. No financial loss to the man was reported.

Gift cards not sent: A Twinsburg woman reported May 31 that after she ordered $2,000 worth of gift cards from someone via a website, the package she received contained only pieces of paper and parts of a priority mail envelope.
