ARREST ON WARRANT
No hunting permit leads to arrest: Police were called Nov. 20 to an area near Barlow and Terex roads shortly before 9 a.m. to investigate a suspicious vehicle. The occupants told police they were hunting. However, neither had a Hudson hunting permit. They were warned about the hunting. One of the men, from Akron, was also found to have an outstanding arrest warrant from Tallmadge. The man was arrested and turned over to Tallmadge Police.
Alert resident thwarts telephone scam: A Norton Road man told police Nov. 17 at 1:17 p.m. that he had just been the target of a telephone scam. According to the man he received a telephone call from someone claiming to be a grandson in legal trouble. The caller told the man the trouble "could all be resolved" if he purchased $1,000 in store gift cards. The man believed it was a scam and notified police.
Discarded bag causes a stink: Police were called to East Main Street Nov. 17 just before 5 p.m. for the report of a suspicious black bag, sitting on the sidewalk. Upon arrival police discovered the bag contained diapers and miscellaneous items for children. Police took the bag to the station, searched it and found a doctor's bill. The Aurora man who owned the bag was located, and the bag returned.
New exit sign could be culprit: Police were dispatched to a Ravenna Street business Nov. 19 at 9:40 p.m. to investigate an alarm drop. Upon arrival police talked to a contractor. A member of the man's crew had replaced an old exit sign. The man was unsure if the wires could have set the alarm off. Everything else looked secure.
Driver shaken after spinout: A Streetsboro woman was stopped Nov. 20 at midnight on Hudson Aurora Road after police noticed she did not have operating rear lights on her car due to heavy rear end damage. The woman, who police say was shaken up and crying, told police she had spun out on state Route 8 during the snowstorm. The officer followed the driver home to make sure she arrived safely. The officer advised the driver to contact Cuyahoga Falls Police to make a crash report. It was not known what the driver hit.
Garage door mysteriously opened: An Oldham Way resident called police Nov. 19 shortly before 5:30 a.m. to report that she woke up hearing her garage door opening. According to the woman, the only other person living at the home is her husband. Police checked the garage door and determined it had not been tampered with. Nothing had been taken from the garage, according to police.
Learning curve includes visit from police: Police were dispatched to a Georgetown Road business Nov. 18 at 1:13 p.m. to investigate an incomplete 911 call. Police found no problem. An employee speculated that since workers must first dial a "9" to get an outside line, that could have caused the issue.
Couple gets a time out from each other: Police were called to a Wellington Circle home in response to a husband and wife who involved in a verbal domestic dispute which resulted in the wife getting locked out of her home. Police talked to both parties who agreed to remain in separate sections of the home the remainder of the night. There were no citations.
