A Car Dealership Theft off Medina Road

Written by

Another heist from a car dealership in Northeast Ohio that led to a high speed chase. 

News 5 reports that it happened in the early hours of May 4th at Southern Select Auto Sales on Medina Road. Surveillance video from the dealership shows at least 6 masked men involved in the theft of multiple vehicles including a 2015 Dodge Ram, an Audi A7, and a Hummer H3.

According to reports, an officer spotted and trailed the stolen vehicles as they got on I-71, with the stolen vehicles eventually reaching speeds over 100 miles per hour. Strongsville police later joined the chase but the vehicles were lost near the turnpike.

Local law enforcement is working with other agencies, including the FBI to determine if other Northeast Ohio dealership thefts, including ones in Akron and Strongsville, are related to this most recent incident in Medina.

The conversation began with secured funding for the health of the Great Lakes and continued with an update on the rail safety bill, the senator says there is a lot of support for it.

He has chosen to reveal the darkest moments from his past, "for the sake of magnifying the power in God’s love, grace and mercy".  Parker's path was, "riddled with drugs, alcohol, sex, depression, rage, and incarceration". He talked with Ray about his journey. 


Imagine somebody coming to your door at 11PM, telling you they'd been shot, and asking for help.

Well, that's exactly what happened to a homeowner in the 11 block of Packard Drive Tuesday night in Akron.

When police got there, they say they administered emergency first aid until EMS arrived, and took the shooting victim to the hospital.

Now, they say the 30 year old man who was shot in the back is in stable condition, but they don't have any idea yet, who shot him, and they're asking for tips.

Summit County to Expand Juror Selection

Written by

Keep an eye on the mail for your jury summons as Summit County looks to expand its pool of eligible jurors.

The Beacon Journal reports that starting in September the jury selection pool will expand beyond just registered voters, and include those with driver’s licenses and state identification cards in hopes of getting a more diverse pool of jurors. 

Summit County Council President Veronica Sims pushed for the move presenting the idea, alongside Councilwoman Erin Dickinson, to the 10 judges of the Summit County Common Pleas Court’s General Division who agreed that more Summit residents should be involved in the justice system.

Susan Baker Ross, the presiding judge in Summit County Common Pleas Court released a statement saying that, “The Ohio Revised Code allows courts to draw jurors from both sources.”  Summit County will join 47 other courts in Ohio that use both voter registration and driver’s license rolls to select jurors.

Recreational marijuana may be on the Ohio ballot this November, as advocates begin collecting signatures for their proposal to change the state law.

News5 reports that The Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Coalition is looking to legalize and regulate recreational weed for adults 21 and up. Under the proposal, individual Ohioans would also be able to grow up to 6 marijuana plants, with a limit of 12 per household.

The group is under a time crunch with only 2 months to collect 124,000 signatures from 44 of Ohio’s 88 counties, but the group is confident they’ll get there, with Tom Haren of The Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Coalition saying,  "Let me be clear: we are going to submit the required number of signatures by July 5 to get it on the ballot this November."
