Missing Child Nothing More Than Childish Hoax: Best of the Blotter
Here are some of the weirdest police reports and incidents from departments across the region.
Here are this week's most bizarre police calls, reports and charges. All information was provided by police reports from departments in Patch communities. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.
She ain't no "call"aback girl- A Cuyahoga Falls woman knew something was amiss when 100 people called her on Jan. 6 looking for a "good time."
According to Cuyahoga Falls police , the surge of gentlemen callers was no fluke; it appears someone created a "Casual Encounters" Craigslist ad using the woman's name and phone number without her permission.
The woman became aware of the ad on Jan. 9, called police and said she had a suspect; however, the initial lead didn't pan out. Police are still investigating.
After the second call, they checked the store, but found no one matching the description -- a black male with blue eyes and blond hair.
The employees were already a little suspicious: The caller claimed the child's name was Tony the Tiger.
He was later found in the cereal aisle.
Gun. Hairbrush. What's the difference? Someone called police from a Shaker Heights residence to report that a family member had pointed a gun at them during a family dispute.
Police report that some witnesses allege that it was only a hairbrush – not a gun – and charges have not been filed.
