FAIRVIEW PARK, Ohio
Fraud: Marleen Drive
On March 30, a 60-year-old resident reported she had received two packages containing five checks for $1,000 each and was requested by the sender to buy multiple gift cards after she had cashed the checks at her bank. Once the checks were cashed, she purchased multiple Nike gift cards in the amounts of $500 each. The checks later bounced.
Criminal damage: Lorain Road
Officers were dispatched to the Fairview Village Apartments for a report of criminal damaging on April 2. Building management reported a group of juveniles in the lobby area of the building had broken a window. The juveniles appeared in the vestibule area waiting for someone to open the main lobby doors to let them in the building. A resident entered but closed the door behind her; and one of the juveniles kicked the lower half of the glass door, which cracked. They quickly left but were located in another apartment complex nearby. A 12-year-old boy was identified as the suspect in the damage complaint.
