HUNTING VALLEY, Ohio
Fire call (general): Chagrin River Road
A caller reported around 9 p.m. Nov. 19 that a large road-marking truck had caught fire just south of Shaker Boulevard. Although the blaze appeared to be out within minutes and without any injuries, there was also an oil leak to contend with.
To clean up any remaining spills on the roadway, the Oakwood Fire Department’s Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT) trailer was dropped off at the scene a little over an hour later.
Suspicion: Fairmount Boulevard
A resident reported around 9:30 a.m. Nov. 19 that a man in a yellow vest and a winter hat was walking around on his property and possibly looking at his gas meter. The resident was leaving, but asked police to check it out.
A patrol officer confirmed a short time later that the man in question worked for the gas company, having seen him earlier.
Suspicion: SOM Center Road
A caller reported seeing two unknown cars near her barn around 11:30 p.m. Nov. 16. One then drove away. She did not know if the remaining car was occupied or what type it was.
She also could not be sure whether or not it was her grandson, so she asked if an officer could check and call back with the result. Police left a voicemail about 10 minutes later reporting that all cars were now gone.
