Identity fraud

Coffee shop purchases made: A woman reported June 24 that, since March, someone charged 14 purchases totaling more than $115 to her credit card account at an East Aurora Road coffee shop. The woman said she was disputing the charges with the credit card company and needed a police report as documentation.

Criminal damaging

Liquid hit vehicle: A woman reported that on June 20 at around 11 a.m., something struck the front of her vehicle, splattering an unidentified clear, odorless liquid onto her windshield. She had been traveling westbound on East Twinsburg Road, near the railroad tracks, at the time. The woman said some of the liquid splattered onto her through an open window and she believed whatever the container was, it was thrown from an eastbound pickup truck. Police said there was a dent and white scuff marks on the hood of the woman’s vehicle. Responding officers searched the area where the incident took place but were unable to find anything that may have been a container. The police report did not include a damage estimate.

Assault

Boy was cut: A Twinsburg man, 19, was charged with first-degree misdemeanor assault on June 30 for allegedly striking a 17-year-old Macedonia boy in the mouth during an altercation. Deputies responded to a report of a disturbance in front of a Route 82 store at about 2:30 p.m. Responding sheriff’s deputies said the boy had a small cut near his mouth and an abrasion inside his mouth. An adult male relative of the boy was notified. The man was summoned to appear in Stow Municipal Court and was released.

Welfare check

Women were playing music: The sheriff’s office said that after it was asked June 24 to perform a welfare check on the occupants of a van in a Route 82 store’s parking lot during the early evening, responding deputies found two women playing music on instruments for money to get back home. Store management requested that the women leave, which they did, according to the sheriff’s report.

Suspicions

Woman was turning around: A Meadowbrooke Way woman reported her children saw someone stop in a vehicle in front of their home, take a picture of the house and then turn around in their driveway during the early afternoon June 25. The sheriff’s office said the children were able to get the vehicle’s license plate number and they were able to trace the driver to a neighbor. The neighbor said she had just left home, stopped her vehicle to search for an unspecified item, then turned around in the woman’s driveway to go back home when she realized she did not have the item. The neighbor denied taking any photos, the sheriff’s office said.

Women knocked on door: A Firebush Lane man reported that on June 24, an unknown woman walked into his attached garage in the afternoon. She knocked on the door leading into the home and then seemed surprised when he answered and left. The man said that about 30 minutes later, another unknown woman did the same thing and several times prior to that day since he moved into the home six months before, strangers had knocked on his door in much the same way. The man said he had no explanation for it.
