Back page: Man returns to scene of crime for hat, arrested

EASTLAKE, Ohio — An 18-year-old had successfully eluded officers in northeast Ohio, but a search for his missing hat led him back into the hands of police. Northeast Ohio Media Group reports officers in Eastlake tried to stop Otha Montgomery for running a red light Tuesday morning. Authorities say Montgomery sped up when an officer pursued him, then pulled into a driveway and ran away on foot. Police say Montgomery was stopped later and told officers he was walking to a friend’s house. They didn’t arrest him. Montgomery later returned to the scene where the pursuit ended to retrieve his lost hat. After giving officers there a detailed description of the missing hat, police found it in a flowerbed and arrested him. Court records don’t list an attorney for Montgomery.
