Police investigate missing funds
Police are investigating why the Sunset Knoll Condo Association on Maramont Drive is missing about $100,000.
An association member called police this weekend and said that bank records show the association’s saving account is zero after two years and the checking account is missing about $40,000, according to reports.
The association’s 30 members pay $130 monthly for payment of bills, such as garbage, landscaping and street lights, police said.
The apparent theft was discovered when Ohio Edison disconnected power to the streetlights and an association member learned that the electric bill had not been paid for six months, triggering an internal investigation into the association’s finances, reports stated.
The association has been registered as a corporate nonprofit organization with the Ohio Secretary of State since 1994.
School bus crashes into ditch in Poland
A Poland school bus that was not carrying any passengers crashed into a ditch Monday morning on Arrel Road, just off state Route 170.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol said the accident occurred about 7:15 a.m. when the driver veered off the right side of the road into a steep ditch.
The patrol reported the driver was not injured, nor impaired during the accident.
Interim Superintendent Don Dailey said the bus was on its way to pick up students, which is why it had no passengers.
After the crash, another bus was sent to transport children to school, he said.
Police probe theft at former Krispy Kreme
Township police are investigating a theft at 796 Boardman-Poland Road, the former location of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.
The building’s Cleveland-based owner told police Friday the prospective tenants he had lined up in June 2011 had stolen items valued at about $60,000 from the building, according to reports.
The owner said he gave the two business proprietors the lock-box code to prepare for opening and found more than 49 items missing in summer 2011, including doors, toilets and old Krispy Kreme items, and has been trying to get restitution ever since, records show.
The proprietors reportedly auctioned off contents from the building that were not theirs to sell, the owner told police.
The building has been vacant for at least two years.
