Crime of the week:
Cops are looking for thug that robbed Popeye’s Chicken on Buckeye: It’s a damn shame you can’t even go buy some of your favorite chicken at Popeye’s without fear of some punk coming in and sticking up the joint. On Aug. 2, a call was received from an employee at my favorite spot, Popeye’s Chicken on East 130th and Buckeye Road. The caller reported that some dude, wearing a light-colored hoodie with dark sleeves bearing the number 3 came in, flashed a pistol, jumped over the counter and took $350 bucks from the registers. Cops are looking for this bastard and if you know something, say something and help get this crazy screwball off our streets. Call (216) 623- 1234 and you could get paid.
A dude named Neff is nabbed for manufacturing a meth lab on wheels: On Aug 24, at 1:30 p.m., Sheriff Zach and his posse rode down and nabbed a dude, Clarence Neff, and his partner for driving around, manufacturing methamphetamine on wheels. Sheriff Zach was tipped off by a person who said there were two suspicious-looking dudes inside a vacant home on Eureka Avenue. They also said there was a reeking smell of something strange. The two dudes were followed by officers as they started walking away from the house. Upon checking the two guys out, they found an active “one pot” in one of the suspects backpack. Busted! If you see something, say something.
Critter on bike sprayed mace in a woman’s face and took her purse: How low can a lowdown punk get just to snatch a woman’s pocketbook? On Aug 19, at 1:00 p.m., a group of ladies pulled up in a van at the Najah Food Market on Westerville Road. After they had parked, a dude walked up to the passenger side of the vehicle, flashed a knife and demanded the chicks give up their purses. The punk then sprayed mace in one of the women’s face and snatched her purse and took on an ol’ raggedy bicycle. A passerby gave chase but, the chump on the bike was too swift and got away. Dammit! If you know something tell on the bastard and get paid. Call (614) 525-3351
Lil-bitty, short dude stuck up the Huntington Bank on West Broad: On Aug.22, at 9:19 a.m., an alarm signaled that there was a hold up in progress at the Huntington Bank on West Broad Street. Upon arrival, it was reported that a lil-bitty, short dude, about 5 feet, had walked in and handed the teller a plastic bag and told her to “fill it up.” She took no chances with this crazy-looking nut, followed his commands and gave him the loot. She described dude as being about 5’ 1” and weighing a little under a buck 40, soaking wet. If you know anything, call Crime Stoppers at (614) 645-4141.
Feds nab Shawn Ellis and Yoshua Bradley in national pimp round up: Ooooowe! On Aug. 24, it was reported that two West Price Hill pimps were arrested as part of an FBI roundup of 150 suspects and the recovery of 105 under-age females involved in prostitution rings across the country. Shawn Ellis, 35, of Rapid Run Road, and 20-year-old Yoshu Bradley, of West Eighth Street., were both busted by the Feds for transporting women for illegal sexual activity – coercion and enticement. In a statement, FBI officials said a76-city sweep was conducted in three days, which placed more than 150 of these good-for-nothing bastards behind bars. I’m sure during their incarceration these two birds will tell the other inmate-colleagues that “pimping ain’t easy.” See ya, and I wouldn’t want to be ya.
