With the tip, officers were able to find and arrest the 29-year-old Canton man.

He was charged with public indecency, a third-degree misdemeanor, according to the Cuyahoga Falls police report. 

Valentine's Day misfortune

An Akron woman called Cuyahoga Falls police and reported her Sandhill residence had been burglarized at about 1:40 p.m. on Feb. 14.

The burglar smashed through the back door and made off with $2,200 in cash and valuables, according to the police report.

The woman intends to prosecute if the crook is caught. 


On Feb. 14 at 3:30 a.m., a 7-Eleven employee was reportedly duped by a male suspect who called the Main Street convenience store and requested that two $500 MoneyPak cards be activated under his name.

The caller turned out to be a con man, and 7-Eleven lost $1,000 on the fraud.
