Two suspected hit-skip drivers arrested: Orange Police Blotter



Property damage, hit-skip: Park Avenue

Police responded to the intersection of Orange Place and Park for a report of a post in the roadway at 7:46 a.m. on October 8, noting upon arrival that it was attached to a pedestrian traffic light that appeared being hit by a car.

While driving through the area, an officer found a 2012 Smart car in a nearby Pinecrest parking lot, unoccupied and showing front driver’s side damage consistent with a post, as well as a flat front passenger tire, with both passenger side rims bent.

The license plate went to a woman from Pepper Pike and when police attended her home at 10.43am she said she thought she had just hit the curb and she didn’t think he needed to tell anyone after the accident.

She was cited for failure to control and leaving the scene of an accident.

Property damage, hit-skip: Boulevard Chagrin

LJI Collision management reported on October 5 that their sign had been hit overnight by a gray vehicle, based on the piece of fender left at the scene. Another check of an identification number on the fender patch showed it belonged to a 2015-2019 Nissan Murano SUV, with personnel securing CCTV footage that led police to a Cleveland Heights man , 65, who was cited for failing to control and leave the scene of an accident.

Flight: Harvard Road

Police responded to Cooper’s Hawk Winery around 9.30pm on October 8 after a Concord Township woman was going to pay her bill when she realized that her wallet – containing ID, insurance and several credit cards credit – was missing from her purse.

She told police she and a friend arrived at 6 p.m. and went to sit at the high tables in the bar by the patio door, and she hung her purse on the back of her chair. At one point, she said she felt movement and noticed a couple sitting behind her.

While still in the basement, the Concord wife began receiving multiple alerts on her phone beginning around 9 p.m. from credit card companies indicating attempted fraudulent charges at Walmart ($999 ) and Macy’s ($3,000). Credit card companies denied these transactions and winery management planned to check the security video for suspicious activity.
