OLMSTED TOWNSHIP, Ohio
Warrant: Stearns Road
An officer stopped a car at 1:27 a.m. Oct. 4 on Stearns Road because the owner showed an open warrant out of Florida. He also learned that the motorist was driving on a suspended license.
Florida authorities told Olmsted Township officers that they should just tell the driver about the warrant, as he was out of the pickup radius. The driver was cited and given the option to have a friend take possession of the car rather than have it towed.
When the friend arrived, however, she had an open warrant for her arrest through North Olmsted. That city’s police arrived shortly to pick her up.
Eventually, enough people — without warrants — arrived and drove the two cars away.
