Summit County Police Blotter: Toddler squares off with neighbor’s stereo
December 18, 2012
Two people were cited for disorderly conduct Dec. 10 after they turned up their music in response to a neighbor they said was being too loud.
An upstairs neighbor told authorities the people living below her constantly complain about the noise she and her toddler son make in their unit, and in return turn up their radio to get back at her, according to a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
She said she’d reported the issue to her landlord and HOA, but had not found a solution, the report stated.
When authorities responded the individuals in the lower unit were playing the music very loudly, the report stated.
When deputies contacted the residents of the lower unit, they said they could frequently hear the woman above walking around and her child dropping things.
The deputy determined the upstairs noise was reasonable day-to-day noise, unavoidable due to the construction of the residence.
Other individuals in the building reportedly told authorities they’d been considering calling the police as well to report the music coming from the lower apartment, according to the report.
Man gives new meaning to ski lift
A man suspected of stealing a pair of skis and ski poles from a local resort was arrested Dec. 11 and charged with theft between $500-$1,000.
The man was arrested after the owner of the skis saw him walking toward a bus stop carrying skis that resembled the ones that belonged to him, a sheriff’s office report stated.
The reported victim told authorities he contacted the man carrying his skies and told him they were his. The suspect reportedly returned them saying he had thought they were his own, according to the report.
The victim reported the suspect then returned to the ski rack and retrieved an older, more damaged pair of skis and ski poles, which did not resemble the ones that were taken, according to the report. The victim then contacted resort security.
The skis were valued at $999.
