Cleveland man threatens Berea property-management worker; police seek candy thief: Berea police blotter

Harassing communications, Aaron Street: A property-management company worker, who lives in Berea, called police at about 3:35 p.m. Oct. 1 after he received a threatening phone call from a Cleveland man.

The worker had been trying to schedule an appointment to repair a woman’s apartment, which had been damaged during a break-in, on Archwood Avenue in Cleveland. On the morning of Oct. 1, the worker received a phone call from an unidentified male, who said if his stolen property wasn’t returned to him, he would “blow away” the worker and burn down the apartment building.

Police called the woman tenant and asked to speak with any male who might be living with her. She handed the phone to a man police later identified as a 25-year-old Cleveland resident.

The man admitted calling the property management worker but said the worker had mischaracterized the conversation. He said he wouldn’t like it if the building burned down because he and the woman would lose their possessions.

Police ordered the man and woman to never again contact the property management worker. They also advised the worker to make no future contact with the man or woman and to call police if they gave him any additional trouble.

Theft, North Rocky River Drive: Several boxes of candy, including Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, white chocolate M&M’s and Snickers with almonds, were stolen at about 10:30 a.m. Sept. 28 from Speedway, 880 North Rocky River.

Speedway’s general manager noticed the candy boxes missing from the shelves. She watched store security video and saw a male stealing the candy. The manager gave the video to police.

Illegal dumping, West Bagley Road: The owner of Delta Carpet Cleaning, 800 West Bagley, called police at about 1 p.m. Oct. 1 and said someone had illegally placed painting material in his business’s Dumpster. The material included three 5-galllon paint containers.
