Kids in the Woods -- Parts 1 and 2
A Prospect Road resident told police Aug. 16 about kids who are going into the woods near her house, building "coffins" in the ground and setting up zip lines.

Drugs? Maybe Not
Police were called to an apartment on Cherry Tree Drive to look into a strong smell of marijuana coming from one of the units Aug. 17.
Officers smelled it, but both said it was either incense or cooking aromas.

Bucket full of “weird items”
A bucket full of “weird items” was reported on the boardwalk at Lakewood Park at around 8:45 a.m. Aug. 19. Police tossed the bucket — filled with broken children’s toys — into the garbage.

DISORDERLY CONDUCT, GLENMONT DRIVE: A North Royalton couple were surprised by a woman who walked into their bedroom at approximately 3:30 a.m. Aug. 16.
The woman, who was clearly intoxicated, had entered their apartment through an unlocked door and made her way to the bedroom before realizing she was in the wrong place.
The couple tried to question the woman, who explained that she was looking for a friend. They asked her if she always went into other people’s homes without knocking.

“Yes,” the woman replied. “Because I’m awesome.”

After leaving the apartment, the woman tried to enter other apartments in the complex.
The couple called police, who caught up with the intruder near the apartment complex. After initially refusing to identify herself, admitting to entering the couple’s apartment or being able to explain why she was in the area, the woman was arrested for disorderly conduct and trespassing

 SUSPICIOUS PERSON, VAN AKEN BOULEVARD: A concerned citizen alerted police to a man walking down the street carrying a tree in the early morning hours of Aug. 15.

SUSPICIOUS SITUATION, SCARLET OAK TRAIL: A caller told police that the person’s nephew was on the computer all day, and a foreign man called at about 6:30 p.m. Aug. 16 asking why the child was on the computer. 

COMPLAINT, COHASSETT AVENUE: Officers met with a man who reported that another man had just stolen his cigarettes.
He also told officers that this other man was a “demon chaser.”
