Man runs out of court after sentencing; police search for Twix bandit: Berea police blotter
Berea police are looking for a man who ran from Berea Municipal Court immediately after he was sentenced. Also, police are looking for a man who stole a box of peanut butter Twix from Circle K. Carol Kovach, special to Sun News  Fleeing & eluding, Berea Commons : Police are looking for a 20-year-old Cleveland man who ran from Berea Municipal Court immediately after he was sentenced. It happened at about 3 p.m. Feb. 2. The man darted out of the courtroom, down a set of stairs and out the front door. Court officers gave chase but the man was too fast. By the time the court called Berea police, the man had turned onto West Bridge Street and disappeared. Berea and Cleveland Metroparks officers searched the area but did not find the man. He left a cell phone and keys in the courtroom. Theft, North Rocky River Drive: Police are looking for a man who stole a box of peanut butter Twix at about 8:30 p.m. Feb. 8 from Circle K, 825 North Rocky River. A store worker said the man walked into the store and asked to use a phone. Shortly afterward, the worker heard merchandise hit the floor where the man was standing. The man admitted accidentally causing candy to fall. The worker picked the candy from the floor. Then the worker noticed that a box of Twix was missing from the shelf. She told the man she knew he had stolen the candy. The man said, "Really?" He extended his arm and asked the worker to tap his hand. She ignored this request, and he left the store. Dangerous drugs, North Rocky River Drive: A Cleveland man, 28, was arrested at about 12:30 a.m. Feb. 8 after police caught him with heroin outside Circle K, 825 North Rocky River. Police saw the man walk toward the rear of the store. It seemed suspicious because usually only employees have business back there. When the man noticed police watching him, he dropped an electronic device on the ground. Police asked the man, who seemed nervous, why he was behind the building. He said he was looking for an air compressor, which was clearly in front of the store. When asked for his driver's license, the man said he didn't have it on him, but he knew his license number. An officer saw something hidden in the man's knit cap and asked the man what it was. The man grabbed the cap off his head and shoved it into his pocket. Police asked if the man had drugs in his cap. The man said yes. Police found a straw and a folded paper bindle, containing heroin, in the cap.      Grand theft auto, West Bagley Road: An unlocked, gray 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse was stolen between 12-5:30 p.m. Feb. 5 from a driveway.

Operating a vehicle under the influence, Seminary Street: A North Royalton man, 52, was arrested at about 1:30 a.m. Jan. 29 after police saw him driving the wrong way on a one-way street. The man was driving a GMC Acadia northbound on Beech Street, where only southbound traffic is allowed. He turned onto Liberty Street without signaling, then turned onto Seminary. The man smelled like alcohol and admitted drinking. His driver's license had been suspended due to previous OVI convictions. Operating a vehicle under the influence, Main Street: A Strongsville man, 57, was arrested at about 10:30 p.m. Jan. 28 after he drove a Chrysler 200 off the road. The man was standing outside the care when police arrived. When he saw police, the man started to step into his car, but police encouraged him to stay put. The man reached into his car, grabbed a pack of gum and shoved a wad into his mouth. The man told police he was driving from the I-X Center in Cleveland, became disoriented and drove off the road. Officers saw beer inside the car and two pint glasses containing beer in the snow nearby. Operating a vehicle under the influence, Sprague Road: A Parma man, 34, was arrested at about 2:30 a.m. Feb. 2 after police saw his BMW sedan almost swerve left of center three times. When the man turned from Prospect Street onto Sprague, his car bounced over a curb.

The car, its hazard lights flashing, protruded into the road and was blocking a fire hydrant.  If you'd like to comment on this post, please visit the cleveland.com crime and courts comments section.

How to get to Akron's the Northside Arts District during Perkins/Innerbelt closure
The closure of Akron's Innerbelt during the city's Old Main Sewer Separation project means a headache to get to the Northside Arts District. Here's how. AKRON, Ohio - The end of the Innerbelt is closed. So is the intersection of MLK Jr. Boulevard, North Howard and North Main streets for a sewer separation projection that will take six months. So how do you get to the restaurants, hotel and galleries of the Northside Arts District? It's a question that concerns business owners there. "The only way we can still be here when it's over is for people to come," said Jill Bacon Madden, owner of Jilly's Music Room, which has live music several nights a week and a gluten-free menu. "They just have to drive another block." Previous coverage: ODOT to start removing Akron Innerbelt Feb. 6: See what roads will close for 6 months City engineering project manager Mike Wytrzyszczewski said because of EPA-mandated deadlines for the sewer separation projrct, and ramp closures on I-77 and I-76, the  confluence of projects affecting Northside was out of the city's control. So they city has been planning since 2015. The good news: There are plenty of detours to Northside, and they're marked with signs. Also, the Northside Courtyard by Marriott Hotel, which also houses the kitschy Speakeasy lounge, has opened its private parking lot to customers for the duration of the closure. The closure will route drivers, trying to go through downtown, northward off Perkins Street to Summit Street and then west on Furnace Street, which runs right thought the Northside District to Howard Street. Tips for getting to the Northside Arts District From Route 8 going north: Take the Perkins exit, turn left on Perkins Street, turn right on Summit Street and left on Furnace Street From Route 8 going south: Take the Perkins exit, turn right on Perkins Street, turn right on Summit Street and left on Furnace Street From W. Market Street: Bear left onto North Street near McDonald's, turn right on Howard Street and left on Ridge or Furnace streets. Or take Market through downtown. Turn left on Summit Street, cross Perkins Street and turn left on Furnace Street From E. Market Street: Turn right onto Summit Street, cross Perkins Street, turn left on Furnace Street From Tallmadge Avenue: Take Howard Street going south toward downtown, turn left on Ridge or Furnace streets Dave Sharp, director of operations at dba, Dante Boccuzzi Akron and Speakeasy, says the closure may have positive effects. "It might expose more people to this place," Boccuzzi said. However, there is some worry out-of-town travelers will have a hard time finding the Courtyard hotel, the only open hotel in the downtown area. During the convergence of the North Main/Howard Street/Innerbelt closure and Old Main Sewer Separation project, drivers can access the Northside Arts District in several ways. Most traffic coming from downtown will take the detour from Perkins Street to Summit Street to Furnace Street. Howard Street will remain open to Beech Street. City of Akron  Sharp said most of his customers come from Cleveland, the west and the north suburbs, such as Hudson and Cuyahoga Falls, so they can still take Route 8 to Perkins Street and take the detour down Summit to Furnace Street. But he's also driven the route from various directions in town and made suggestions for signage placement. He's asked for a sign on West Market Street at North Street, which runs east to Howard Street. The Northside District logo will be added to the orange detour signs all around the district to help drivers navigate the closure. But Claudia Zeber Martell and Michael Martell of Zeber-Martell Clay Studio & Art Gallery are concerned the detour will cause drivers to go faster down Furnace Street. The couple, who have owned the gallery there for nearly 30 years, have kept the business alive through many construction events over the years and feel confident their clientele will still come. But safety is a concern. The city plans to have police out during the first weeks of the closure. "If we need them, we'll keep them there," Wytrzyszczewski said.

Alianna's last journey down Kinsman Road offers lessons in the dark: Phillip Morris
Alianna DeFreeze went missing on a dark Kinsman Avenue where many children continue to find their own way to school. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The light from Marshall's Barbershop flickers onto Kinsman Road at 4:30 most mornings. The shop is known for catering to men who want a haircut or shave before the sun comes up. The late Congressman Louis Stokes was a regular. The rest of the Mount Pleasant neighborhood is not so bright or inviting in the pre-dawn hours. Diagonally across Kinsman Road stands the former St. Cecilia Church, a parish that catered to inner-city Catholics for nearly a century until its membership tanked and Bishop Richard Lennon closed it in 2010. The street corner of the darkened building, since repurposed into a non-denominational church, hosts an RTA bus stop. That is where the beginning of the end started for Alianna DeFreeze, 14, whose body was found three miles away in an abandoned house last Sunday. Christopher Whitaker, a registered sex offender, was arrested Thursday and charged with her murder. Troubling questions now confront the city. How did Alianna go missing at a busy intersection in the shadow of Cleveland Police Fourth District headquarters? How can we better protect our children as we send them off to schools in neighborhoods where predators lurk and danger constantly fills the streets? Alianna's murder is a jarring wake-up call that comes at the cost of a teen's life. We know how her tragic story ultimately ends. Now we must determine how it began two Thursday mornings ago, and what lessons we can learn. We know that Alianna's final trip down Kinsman was in the dark aboard an RTA bus. What did she see? Who saw her? Was she ever really safe during any part of her journey to school? I rode the No. 14 RTA bus early Thursday morning, and walked along Kinsman Road and Union Avenue to try and get a sense of what Alianna's final pre-dawn ride and walk might have been like. I was stunned and worried by what I saw: a large number of children moving about. Unescorted children. These children, even the larger ones, were easily identifiable by their book bags, the way they talked, or their plastic RTA bus passes, which some of them wore around their necks. A week earlier, Alianna was one of those children. She boarded the No. 14 bus just after 6:30 a.m. on her way to E Prep & Village Prep Woodland Hills, a high-performing charter school. It's a 15-minute RTA ride that took her through the heart of a still-darkened neighborhood filled with beauty salons, social service agencies, collapsing buildings and churches -- lots of churches. She got off the bus at East 91st Street, near Union Avenue, and quickly went missing. A week later, in the wake of her highly publicized kidnapping and murder, countless children still were boarding public transportation or walking along the darkened streets without chaperones. Why? I wasn't the only one pondering that question. "I am surprised at the number of children I see out here by themselves. I'm keeping an eye on them," said Charles Lewis, who works for One Six Security, which provides security for some Cleveland charter schools. "If I see a child who's acting nervous or just has an uncomfortable look, I will walk with them and make sure they're OK. But as long as they're laughing and acting like children, I'll just keep an eye on them and make sure they get to where they need to go." Lewis was standing down the street from the Fourth District police station when we spoke Thursday. He said he was moved to the Kinsman and Union Avenue intersection near Alianna's school after she went missing. He now spends at least four hours a day watching for children as they transfer from the No. 14 bus and get onto the No. 10 (the route that Alianna took before she went missing). But why do we wait before we act? Why do we reassign professional crossing guards and child protectors like Lewis to dangerous intersections after a life has already been snatched? How many more dangerous sexual predators walk among us? How do we intend to protect our children from them? This city must address those questions now and in the coming mayoral election. How can we continue to push school reforms, when the path to the schoolhouse door is fraught with danger? Cleveland has lately been heralded as a city brimming with comeback stories and economic potential. We hosted a highly praised Republican National Convention, and our sports teams have generated a form of social currency that is good for the hospitality industry and some downtown development. What does it all mean if a seventh grader can't ride a bus safely to school? The city and its schools have a primary role to play in protecting the young after they leave the safekeeping of their parents. But so do neighborhood anchors. The number of darkened churches that Alianna passed on her final morning led me to ask what some might consider an unfair question. What if the Mount Pleasant churches along Kinsman Road turned on their lights each morning when children headed off to school? Would it help? Would it cause a predator or any other criminal to think twice before striking? Maybe it does take a lighted village of churches to help guide a child -- especially in dangerous hours before dawn. Alianna's final journey down Kinsman Road started next to a dark church, across the street from a well-lit barbershop. The barbershop is considered a neighborhood anchor and a safe place. Then the girl's life journey was brutally interrupted near an intersection in which she should have been safe. Every neighborhood has a stake in protecting its young. It's a matter of wanting and finding a way to make a difference. That is one of the necessary and painful lessons of Alianna's death.
