NORTH ROYALTON, Ohio
Theft: Sunrise Boulevard
On July 24, police were dispatched to Sunrise Boulevard regarding a hit-skip incident involving a golf cart. An arriving officer talked to the caller, who said the suspect — driving a six-wheel vehicle — was attempting to turn around in the parking lot when he hit a parked vehicle.
The caller then approached the golf cart driver about the incident. The man, who was wearing a gray shirt and Cavs hat, said he would take care of it, but then drove off.
At that point, another officer hearing about the incident said they had the North Royalton driver pulled over for a traffic stop on North Akins.
Soon after, the condo association’s maintenance supervisor arrived, saying their six-wheel Polaris ATV, which was involved in the hit-skip, was missing and that the driver didn’t have permission to take it.
When asked why he didn’t stop after hitting the parked vehicle, the man said he didn’t want to get yelled at. He later admitted to taking the Polaris ATV. The man was charged with theft and hit-skip.
Drunken driving: Royalton Road
On July 25, a city employee alerted police about a suspicious silver Pontiac that was moving from parking space to parking space in the police station lot.
An officer talked to the driver, who slurred that she was at the police station to pick up her fiancé, who was just bonded out of jail.
As far as parking in different spots, the emotional woman said she was confused by the signs. The driver at first denied drinking. She later changed her mind and admitted to drinking.
After failing a field sobriety test, during which she swayed side to side, she was arrested for drunken driving.
Also, it turned out that a passenger in the Pontiac had multiple warrants. He was arrested and held for transport.
During a search of the Pontiac, police found marijuana. The driver was cited for drug abuse.
