Erratic driving prompts two calls to dispatch: A Streetsboro man, 48, was arrested and charged with OVI and marked lanes May 19 after he was seen weaving and driving erratically. The Twinsburg Police Department received an initial call around 11 p.m. from a woman, who said that she was traveling east on Interstate 480 when she saw a vehicle driving erratically. While dispatch was getting information from the woman, a second call came in from another woman who said that a vehicle just hit hers on I-480, and that this vehicle was exiting the interstate at Route 91. Responding officers were able to find and arrest the driver, who entered a not guilty plea in Stow Municipal Court May 24.
More than $1,000 stolen: A Darrow Road business contacted police May 23 to report that someone cashed two fraudulent checks for $1,284.65 sometime between 6 p.m. May 22 and 10 a.m. May 23. On May 26, a 28-year-old Cleveland woman returned to the store and was recognized by the owner as the person who allegedly cashed the checks. She was arrested and charged with three counts of forgery, two counts of theft, and one count each of identity fraud and resisting arrest. She had an initial appearance in Stow Municipal Court May 30, and her case was bound over to the Summit County Court of Common Pleas June 9.
Four reportedly involved in vehicle damage: A Maple Drive resident called police May 24 to report that his vehicle, a 2016 red Ford Escape, was stolen sometime between May 23 at 10 p.m. and May 24 at 6:50 a.m. Twinsburg dispatch was contacted by the Cuyahoga Metro Housing Authority May 25, which reported the vehicle had been found in Bratenahl with the rear hatch window smashed out of the vehicle. The CMHA had four males -- two 20-year-olds, a 14-year-old and a 13-year-old, in custody in connection with the theft.
Traffic violation uncovers marijuana: A Streetsboro man, 23, was cited for possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana paraphernalia and possession of drug paraphernalia May 26 after a patrolling officer stopped the vehicle he was driving for a traffic violation. A K-9 officer alerted on the vehicle after an exterior search. Officers found a vacuum-sealed bag of marijuana, as well as a digital scale and a marijuana grinder. There was a hearing scheduled for June 7 in Stow Municipal Court.
Unknown male follows female in vehicle: A 41-year-old Reminderville female approached police who were conducting a traffic stop on Glenwood Boulevard near Tolland Drive on June 1. The woman, who was already on the phone with dispatch, told police that she had been at a Twinsburg gas station when an unknown black man with a beard approached her vehicle on foot. She said she pulled out of the gas station and started driving east on Glenwood Drive. She reported that the man got into a small red car and began tailgating her. The woman said she called dispatch at this point. As she approached the roundabout, the woman said she needed to stop to yield to traffic. While she was stopped, the man got out of his vehicle and approached her vehicle on foot. The woman said she was able to keep driving until she saw the Reminderville patrol car lights at the unrelated traffic stop. As she pulled over to the cruisers, the red car continued east on Glenwood Drive. The woman was unable to provide any further identifying features on the man, and a review of the traffic cam video by police yielded no other information about the man's identity. An officer escorted the woman to her residence after the traffic stop was cleared.
