MITTELBURGER HEIGHTS, Ohio
Receipt of a stolen car: Engle Road
An officer was patrolling the Motel 6 parking lot at 7:36 am on April 20 when he saw a car again in the parking lot. The car had no front license plate.
He walked over to the car and noticed the back panel which later revealed that it belonged to another car. Then he found it had been reported stolen.
He saw a woman leave the room where the car was parked and go to the nearby Red Roof Inn. The officer went to Motel 6 and watched a video of the same woman who had previously parked and got out of the car to enter the room she had just left.
The police searched the area but did not find the suspect. The car was towed after the license plate was removed.
An officer spoke to a man who had rented this room. He said he only knew the suspect by her first name and gave him her phone number. The officer researched online and found the suspect’s photo and phone number on an adult escort website. Your last name was not listed. The phone number matched that of the man who rented the room.
The officer spoke to the woman by phone. She didn’t want to talk to him about the car she’d driven to the motel.
He then spoke to various detectives about the woman. They gave him the possible surname of the woman for identification. He learned that she had a suspended driver’s license.
The court will send her warrant documents showing that she is cited for driving under suspension and for the fictional signs.

Fraud: Pearl Road
A Get Air Trampoline benefactor went to the police station in late April about a credit card complaint. He said he was in the trampoline shop with his kids and stole his bank card on a set of massage chairs. Then he put the card in his compartment and sat on the chair.
About an hour later he went to the Cubby to get his card. It was gone. Nobody gave the card to the front desk.
A short time later, he received two text messages from a bank app. It showed a $ 90 purchase on that card at a Clark Avenue gas station in Cleveland. A second purchase was at the Steelyard Walmart in Cleveland for $ 214. The total was $ 304 that was charged to his card.
The victim was unable to view any security material at the time. The officer watched the video two days later. It didn’t show anyone reaching into the victim’s room. The facility suggested the victim might have lost the card in the foam pit. The detective agency is investigating.
