Firefighters extinguished blazes in two cars behind 1017 Bentley Ave. on the city’s East Side at 12:20 a.m. Thursday and referred the matter to the arson investigation unit.

The homeowner said his son received a telephone call Wednesday from a man who threatened to burn his car if a debt wasn’t paid.

The house and garage suffered minor damage.

Ok, so son needed car to go to work to try and pay off debt. Didn't pay debt so car burnt and now son cannot get to work to try and pay off debt. Why didn't they just offer to take the car to pay for the debt. Sometimes criminals are dumber than the people that get themselves in these situations.

I wonder what kind of debt this young man was in for? Any chance it could be of the herbal or powdered variety?

On the other hand, you have to give credit to the guy that did it. Unlike our government, this guy made a promise and followed through on it. That is man of integrity iy you ask me. Maybe the arsonist can take Tim Ryans spot in DC since that bumpkin is as worthless as they come!

Pair nabbed in purse snatching

Thursday, August 23, 2007

BOARDMAN — Police and members of the U.S. Marshal’s Task Force arrested two people in connection with an Aug. 2 purse snatching outside of a U.S. Route 224 eatery.

Steven M. Filimon, 21, of Bentley Avenue, Youngstown, is charged with robbery and Amanda Leskey, 18, of Coitsville-Hubbard Road, Youngstown, is charged with complicity to robbery.

Both were arrested Wednesday at Filimon’s home. Both were lodged in the Mahoning County Jail.

On Aug. 2, a Virginia woman told police that a man grabbed her purse and fled as she was leaving the Olive Garden. The man jumped into a car that left the parking lot. A witness obtained the car’s license plate which was registered to Leskey.

Steve is a very talented young man and is well known in the hood . He has been wasting his time on small stuff but I look for him to get a big score soon . He is now in real need of a car and this will drive him to go for the big bucks .
