Here are this week's most bizarre police calls, reports and charges. All information was provided by police reports from departments in Patch communities. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.
I hope that isn't a new prize- On Jan. 21, the manager of Chuck E. Cheese in Fairlawn called police to report someone parked outside the exit smoking weed in their car.
When the officer arrived, he walked up to the car and stated he could smell marijuana smoke coming out. The officer asked the woman inside, 30, of Akron, if she was smoking weed and she turned over a half-burnt marijuana cigar.
She then gave officers a false name and age. When police finally figured out who she was, the officer charged her with drug possession and providing a fake name.
Grand theft mail- A Shaker Heights man reported to police that he was gone for five weeks and while he was gone, he believes someone entered his apartment through an unlocked sliding glass door and opened his mail.
None of his belongings were missing or disturbed.
Woman goes fisticuffs with robber- A woman* was getting out of her car and reported that another woman approached her.
The suspect was dressed in all black with a black hood on her face. She told the woman that she had a gun and to get back in the car.
The first woman refused and punched the suspect in the face.
The suspect demanded the woman’s wallet and she gave it to her, and then the suspect fled. The suspect got away with $200 cash and debit cards.
*Editor's Note: The original version of this post incorrectly reported that this woman was from Beachwood.
