Responding to an address on Richlawn Drive, officers met the caller who had blood running down his face. The man stated his girlfriend, upset over a vehicle he bought her, tried to gouge his eyes out and inflicted deep cuts on his face. He agreed to press charges for domestic violence.

A Robert Drive resident accused his neighbors of taking his picture while he sat on his back porch. The neighbors denied his charge but acknowledged tensions had been rising since their dog relieved itself on the neighbor’s lawn. Both parties were advised to stay on their own property, keep their animals on their own property and not to take pictures of each other.

A man stopped at the station at 8:30 a.m. to report the night before, while at a local beer and burger joint, someone entered his unlocked vehicle and stole his work phone and laptop. A man was reportedly seen sitting in a car in the lot, watching people.

The man notified the station at 10:30 a.m. that he found his phone and laptop at work.

After a woman lost her job at a local truckstop because she threatened a co-worker, she turned her attention to the night clerk at a gas station on Wheatley Road.

Another officer showed her how to block callers on her phone.

A car clocked at 101 mph was stopped on 77 SB. When asked why she was driving so fast, the woman stated she had to go to the bathroom real bad. 2:15 a.m.

A Streetsboro Road resident was working in her garden when she was approached by two Rottweilers. They did not act aggressively but she was upset that they dug up some of her strawberry plants.

A Kiowa Road resident paid a carpet installer $1,952 in advance to install living room carpet. The installer cashed the check, but failed to install the carpet. He repeatedly dodged the homeowner’s calls.

A resident filed a fraud report against his ex-wife. She had used his name and information to take out multiple loans. He produced documents from civil court and wanted to file criminal charges against her.

Meanwhile back at the motel:

A group of construction workers from Toledo were drinking and playing loud music in the parking lot. An officer pointed out that was not permitted and they need to retire to their rooms. A fistfight broke out between the one who had the most to drink and the one who spoke the best English. Their foreman arrived, took control and arranged transportation back to Toledo for the one who had the most to drink.
