Man stopped in parking lot: Police said they charged a Seven Hills man, 42, with misdemeanor operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, blood alcohol content test refusal, falsification, obstructing official business, no operator’s license, driving under suspension and obedience to a traffic control device after they saw him make a left turn into a Macedonia Commons Boulevard parking lot, despite a no left turn sign, at about 9:45 p.m. Sept. 30.

Tampering with evidence

Gun magazine hidden: A man, 21, and woman, 20, both Euclid residents, were charged with third-degree felony tampering with evidence at about 9:50 p.m. on Sept. 25 after police stopped the vehicle they were in for speeding.
