Possession of drugs: A 25-year-old Cleveland man was charged Feb. 10 at 12:45 p.m. with possession of drugs and driving under suspension on Valley View Road. Police said they stopped the vehicle for driving too closely, for which the man was also charged. After police stopped the vehicle, they said the driver told them he had a small amount of marijuana in the car, his license was suspended and he had an outstanding warrant for his arrest, according to police. Dispatchers confirmed the man's license was suspended and said he had two outstanding warrants for his arrest. Police said a plastic bag with 1.1 grams of marijuana was found in the vehicle.
Breaking into cars: Police were summoned Feb. 5 at 10:26 p.m. to an East Aurora Road business to investigate a complaint of two males who were breaking into cars. An employee at the business reported he was following the males down Waters Drive. Dispatchers received a second call from another employee who was also pursuing the males on Waters Drive. Police said the males were behind the barriers on Waters Drive at James Lane, then ran into the woods. Police talked with three employees who directed them into the woods north of Waters Drive. An Oakwood Village police K-9 and handler responded as well as two Northfield Village police units, joining Macedonia police. The police checked the area but were unable to find the subjects. After the Oakwood Village K-9 tracked the subjects to Valley View Road just west of Melody Lane, police said it appeared the subjects got into a vehicle in that area. The victim, an Akron woman, reported she must have left her driver's side car door unlocked because there was no forced entry or damage to her vehicle, and although her glove box had been rummaged through, nothing was missing.
