Drug possession

Man found with meth: Police said they charged a 28-year-old Akron man with fifth-degree felony drug possession after they stopped a vehicle he was a passenger in with a display of license plate violation on Roll and Hold Parkway at around 3:30 p.m. Feb. 3. Police said that after they saw the Akron man moving around erratically in the vehicle as they stopped it, he admitted to having a small amount of meth in his pants pocket when they told him they were going to call in a police K-9. Police said they searched the vehicle, but did not find any other illegal items. The man was taken to Macedonia City Jail.

Police said the vehicle had a regular license plate on its front, but a temporary plate on its rear. They issued a warning to the male driver and released him at the scene.

Operating a vehicle

under the influence

Man stopped for traffic violations: A Garfield Heights man, 60, was charged with operating a vehicle under the influence, marked lanes, turn signals and obedience of a traffic control device after police stopped his vehicle in the parking lot of an East Aurora Road service station at about 3 a.m. Jan. 29. A passenger in the vehicle, a 48-year-old Cleveland woman, was charged with misdemeanor falsification and drug paraphernalia possession.

Police said they suspected the man had been using cocaine and arrested him after he performed poorly on the field sobriety tests.

Police said the woman falsely identified herself, but they had already recognized her. Stow Municipal Court had issued an arrest warrant for her for failing to appear in court on misdemeanor theft and possession of criminal tools charges filed after a shoplifting incident at a Macedonia Commons store in December. Police said they found a crack pipe in the woman’s purse.

The man and woman were both taken to Macedonia City Jail.

Identity fraud

Fraudulent credit card charges reported: A Red Bush Lane man reported Jan. 27 that someone used his personal information to open a credit card account, then charged six purchases totaling approximately $1,260 at stores in Maple Heights, Cleveland and Shaker Heights earlier in the month. The man said there was also a pending $482 charge, but he did not know where it had been made. The man said he had already reported the matter to the bank that issued the card and it was investigating.
