Bay Village Police Blotter: February 5th

Bay Village -

On January 31, 2019 at 1:14am, Bay Village Police conducted a traffic stop on Lake Road at Huntmere Rd for equipment and moving violations. The operator, a 22 year old male North Olmsted resident, appeared to be under the influence. The male failed field sobriety tests and was placed under arrest. Once on station, the male refused a breathalyzer test and a urine test. He was cited for numerous violations and is facing charges in Rocky River Municipal Court.

On February 1, 2019 at 4:30am, Bay Village Police cited a vehicle parked on Lincolnshire Drive near Sandalwood Drive for an over-night parking violation. While writing the citation, the officer noticed that the license plate information did not match the model of the vehicle. Additionally, there was gasoline leaking all over the road. The vehicle was towed and the owner was notified. The owner arrived at the BVPD to handle the situation. Once at the police station, it was determined that the owner recently purchased the vehicle at a very low price. In the end, he may have been subject to a scam, having purchased the vehicle from someone who didn’t have the right to sell it. Police are investigating.

On January 29, 2019, Officer Gregory Engle was recognized as a “Top Cop” for his O.V.I. enforcement. Off. Engel and other regional officers were recognized by the Injury Prevention Center at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital during their annual meeting. Off.
