Oct. 17 – More than $8,000 in appliances were reported stolen from an East Royalton Road business after the business owner discovered a truckload of appliances had never been delivered to an area builder. The appliances were to be delivered to a new residence under construction on Sept. 27. The delivery team was questioned, at which time they assured the company they made the delivery. However, after pulling GPS data, it was discovered the truck never made it to the delivery location and instead went to a Cleveland parking lot where the appliances were given to two men who pulled up in a box truck. The suspects allegedly paid $2,000 for five appliances. The detective bureau is investigating with charges pending.

No charges were filed.
