Police Blotter Item of the Day

Posted By on Fri, Jun 1, 2012 at 9:58 AM


In our weekly tour through the local police blotters, some stand out more than others. Sometimes it's for the weird nature of the crime, sometimes it's for the odd facts reporters include in the story.

Which brings us to North Olmsted and a man who reportedly slung out his junk in front of a 16-year-old cashier at Giant Eagle. Despicable and disgusting. We obviously hope cops can wrangle the pervert to justice. But's writeup made us chuckle. It's all in the details here.


PUBLIC INDECENCY, LORAIN ROAD: Police are investigating reports that a man exposed himself to a 16-year-old cashier at Giant Eagle May 24 just after 10 p.m. According to reports, the suspect is a white man in his 60s, 5-foot-9 with dark gray hair, a full beard, glasses and wearing a cap. Another cashier at the store told police the suspect had approached her register and was acting strangely. He then approached the 16-year-old’s register and exposed himself while paying for a quarter sliced watermelon. The suspect paid cash and did not use a Giant Eagle card. Officers are continuing to investigate the incident.

Way to be thorough.
