Brogdon enters plea
Keith Brogdon, 36, of Third Street Southwest, pleaded innocent Tuesday in Warren Municipal Court to five counts of misdemeanor child endangering and one count of operating a motor vehicle impaired. A police officer was in the drive-through lane at Burger King on Main Avenue Southwest at 10:30 p.m. Friday when a worker advised him the person in the car in front of him had an open container of alcohol in the vehicle and several children in the car. The officer followed the car as it made two turns without using turn signals. The officer stopped the car and noticed the smell of liquor on Brogdon and spotted the passenger trying to conceal a mostly empty bottle of wine. Most of the five children in the back seat were in seat belts. Brogdon failed field-sobriety tests, police said.
Poland Township police are investigating the disappearance of 33 pheasants from their pens at Lowellville Rod and Gun Club on Quarry Road. The birds were reported missing at 7 p.m. Sunday. Police said the club raises the birds and releases them on their property for club members to hunt.
Patient IDs at risk
A dermatologist at 755 Boardman Canfield Road told police someone forced open a box that holds lab specimens outside the back door of his office. The burglary happened sometime between 7 p.m. Friday and 1 p.m. Monday. The doctor told police the box held skin specimens. The lab said it picked up the specimens at 7 p.m. Friday, but he is concerned because patients’ personal information, such as dates of birth and Social Security numbers, are in the boxes with specimens. He told police there is a risk for identity theft.
