BB gun used to break windows in four houses; squatter claims apartment guest suite: Berea police blotter
Windows in four houses were broken or cracked between March 17 and early March 19. A BB gun was used to break at least three of the windows. Also, an unwanted lodger occupied a guest suite earlier this month in Talibrook Apartments on Front Street. Carol Kovach, special to Sun News  Criminal damaging, West Street-Race Street-Crossbrook Drive: Windows in four houses - two on West and one on both Race and Crossbrook - were broken or cracked between March 17 and early March 19. A BB gun was used to break at least three of the windows. In one of the homes on West, the victim was watching television at about 8:30 p.m. March 17 when she heard two objects hit her living-room window. She found two BB's on the windowsill. The second victim on West called police March 19 about a broken window in her house. She wasn't sure when the window was broken.  On Race, the victim heard noises in front of his home at about 8:45 p.m. March 18, then noticed three holes in his front window. Police found BB's in the windowsill. The victim on Crossbrook called police at about 9 p.m. March 18 after hearing objects hit his front window. He believed a BB gun was used but police didn't find the BB's. Breaking & entering, Front Street: An unwanted lodger occupied a guest suite earlier this month in Talibrook Apartments, 478 Front. On March 13, apartment staff found that someone had showered and used all the toiletries in the suite. Also, packets of ramen noodles and a burnt candle had been left on the floor. The apartment manager investigated and learned that the suite "had not been properly secured" prior to March 13, so staff made sure the suite was completely locked. Then, on March 20, staff noticed that a screen in the guest apartment had been broken and the door pried open. More ramen noodle packets were on the floor, and someone had used apartment towels in lieu of toilet paper. Police said they would patrol the area. Burglary, Crescent Drive: More than $1,000 in paper money and rolled coins and nickels were stolen late March 19 or early March 20 from a house. The victim woke up the morning of March 20 and felt a draft in the house. He noticed that cupboards - where he had stored money related to his vending machine business - were open, and the money was gone.  The victim told police he had locked his front door before going to bed March 19. Police found a crank window open in the rear of the house. Muddy footprints had been left near the cupboards.  Failure to stop after accident-operating a vehicle under the influence, Pulaski Street: A Berea man, 31, was arrested March 17 after the Honda Civic he was driving rear-ended a Ford on Pulaski at High Street. The victim said he was driving on eastbound Pulaski at about 10:30 p.m. He pulled over to park on the right side of the road, just short of High Street. The victim checked his rear-view mirror and saw the Civic coast into the rear end of his car. The Civic's driver had his head down, as if he were asleep, before the collision. The victim and his girlfriend, who was in the passenger seat, stepped out of their car and told the man he should not be driving. The man became angry and backed up his car, nearly hitting the victim's girlfriend. Then the man drove forward, almost hitting the victim, and sped away. The victim recognized the man and told police he lived on Sprague Road. Police went to the man's apartment building and saw the Honda Civic, which had a damaged front bumper and bent license-plate bracket. The man walked out of the building and said to police, "I assume you guys are here for me." He tossed a BB handgun into the snow, saying he carried the weapon because someone was following him. Criminal damaging, Front Street: Someone smashed the side mirror and dented the roof of an Acura TL parked outside Hamilton House apartments, 375 Front Street. The damage was reported at about 4 p.m. March 17. Police found dirt and debris on the car's trunk and roof, indicating that someone had climbed on top of the car. Operating a vehicle under the influence, Prospect Street: A Berea woman, 46, was arrested at about 3 a.m. March 18 after police saw her Ford Focus almost hit a curb and travel left of center on Prospect near Crosby Street. The woman told police she was trying to turn on her fog lights and access her Bluetooth, which caused her to drive erratically. She said was looking for a place to eat because she had "the munchies." Police smelled marijuana in her car. She tried to hide hypodermic needles with heroin residue in her hand. Officers found a bottle of wine in her trunk. The woman later admitted using heroin and swallowing sleeping pills. Theft, East Grand Street: A TV and Epson projector were stolen between March 13-18 from a vehicle parked in a lot outside Baldwin Wallace University's Carmel Hall. The victim believed he had locked the vehicle but there were no signs of a break-in. Operating a vehicle under the influence, West Bagley Road: A Columbia Station man, 48, was arrested at about 2:30 a.m. March 11 after police saw his Jeep Grand Cherokee drift out if its lane and travel straight through a left-turn lane on West Bagley. At first the man told police he had not consumed any alcoholic beverages. Then he admitted drinking one beer and a glass of wine with dinner the previous evening. Operating a vehicle under the influence, North Rocky River Drive: A Lorain man, 37, was arrested at about 11:55 p.m. March 10 after police saw his Chrysler Pacifica weaving on North Rocky River near Emerson Drive. The man also nearly stopped at a green light. The man told police he had consumed two beers. Operating a vehicle under the influence, Front Street: A Brunswick man, 32, was arrested at about 1 a.m. March 17 after police saw his Jeep Wrangler weave, jerk and drift left of center on Front near Fifth Avenue. The man smelled of alcohol but when asked if he had been drinking, he said, "No, not at all." Police later found beer in the Jeep.

Gas leaks discovered at Medina apartment complex involved in fatal explosion
Medina Fire Chief Bob Painter said Columbia Gas of Ohio was called back to the scene at 10 a.m. Wednesday. Watch video MEDINA, Ohio - Columbia Gas of Ohio and Medina Fire Department discovered several gas leaks at Medina Village Apartments almost a week after a fatal apartment explosion killed an 18-year-old bedridden man. Medina Fire Chief Bob Painter said the department called the gas company back to the complex about 10 a.m. Wednesday after a resident complained of a natural gas smell.  Investigators discovered that six of the eight units in one building had leaks. Columbia Gas was expected to check all of the buildings for leaks, Dan Gladish of the Medina Building Services and Code Enforcement office said. Several stoves and gas heaters were red tagged for leaks, Painter said. Columbia Gas and the fire department officials went building to building to check for more leaks. The investigators shut off gas to the apartments which means there is no hot water and heat for residents, Painter said. Some residents abandoned their apartments because they don't feel safe. Workers discovered that some gas lines were uncapped, while others found a small leak by a stove and gas lines with a missing valve, Painter said. Painter couldn't give the total number of leaks found during their investigator. The apartment's management company, Integrity Realty Group, is responsible for addressing the maintenance issues, Gladish said. Attempts to reach Integrity Realty Group were unsuccessful.  Once the lines inside the apartments are repaired, crews will restore the gas and conduct an inspection to make sure appliance and house lines are safe, Columbia Gas said in a statement. The company added that the explosion didn't damage the gas mains connected to the apartment complex.  The explosion happened about 3:15 a.m. Feb. 9 at the apartment complex on Springbrook Road. The teen who died as been identified as Jacob Drake. Drake's parents suffered burns over 80 percent of their bodies. They were still listed in critical condition as of Thursday afternoon, a MetroHealth spokeswoman confirmed.
