GIRL SCOUT COOKIES

GIRL SCOUT COOKIES
Last year Holly Goransson sold Girl Scout Cookies at the corner of Rt 304 and Logan Way. At the One Stop Mart. They will be there again this year for a few weeks beginning on March 8, 2014. They have a goal to sell 2000+ (they sold 2050+ last year). I think we all love these cookies and they are only available around this time of year. Here is an enterprising young person in our community who is using her head and working for something. Let’s all support her and all the others who are selling these cookies in our community.
Some Warnings from our Vienna Friends
The Ohio Development Services Agency is warning senior citizens of a telephone scam where the caller, claiming they are from the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP), solicits personal bank information and social security numbers.
The calls come from a 800 number, and in all cases the caller says HEAP was given extra money to help customers because of recent cold weather. Some solicitors refer to the program as the “Energy Assistance Program.”
If you receive a call or have already received a call, report it to the ODSA Office of Community Assistance at 800-848-1300.
We have a local HEAP office the number is 866-747-1041. If you need assistance with preparing for appointment call me at 330-307-0111.
Thank you,

Safety for or Residents and Seniors

September 11, 2013

Message 9/11/13 from Chief Tisone. Please pass the word and heed the contents.

Make residents aware that a white male was arrested for burglarizing homes by the name of James Larosa. He would ride around the neighborhoods in the areas of Colonial, Mansell, Hadley, Euclid ect. on a bicycle and ask to do yard work. While working at some of the residences, he would go inside the home and remove items. Advise your readers especially the senior citizens not to allow anyone to solicit them for work at their homes. These people prey on the elderly.

Thanks Chief. Please keep us up to date for our safety

SENIORS BEWARE

August 14, 2013

Received from Chief Tisone, Liberty Police. PLEASE READ and pass along to all our residents, specially our senior citizens who may not have access to email or sometimes even the paper. Many due to finances have to cancel the paper so they are not aware of many things that happen in our community. Please take these messages seriously. Pass the word!
The department has received two reports of senior citizens being approached at Giant Eagle and at the PMC Bank at 304 & Belmont Ave. The suspects are two male blacks pretending to inherit money and needing the senior citizen to go to their bank and take out money. Supposedly once the senior citizen gives them the “earnest” money, they can split the inheritance. Please caution seniors in your family to walk away and immediately contact the Liberty Police Dept. at (330)759-1511 or (330)675-2730. Also, any description of persons or vehicles should be noted.

Another Note From The Chief

August 6, 2013

Another note from Chief Tisone. Please read and if you have any information please call the Liberty Police. Our police cannot be everywhere at the right place and time. They are asking you as residents to keep a lookout for problems and call them with any info. Help keep our community, our neighborhood safe. You could be their next target.

Looking for any information on a suspect vehicle from a theft that occurred on 8/2/2013 (13-4979). Suspect W/M pulled in the driveway of an elderly male and inquired about sealing his driveway. Victim paid $200 up front and the male left to get gas and never returned. Suspect is described as a W/M 6-00 185 bro bro Medium build 25-30. The male was driving a white 2002-04 Chevy pickup truck with a black tar tank in the back. Provided a fake receipt and phone number of 330.792.4563. Anyone that can advise if they have heard of any similar incidents or can get information of the suspect vehicle please pass it along. Call Liberty Police ASAP.

From the Chief of Police Please Read

August 6, 2013

I have just received this information from Chief Tisone, Liberty Police. He asked me to pass it on to my readers. Please read it and tell all those who do not have computers and will receive this. Many of our seniors do have them so please call your friends in our community and warn them of this. Anyone could fall for a scam like this. This one involved only property but it could have been worse. Be a good neighbor and share this. I thank the Chief for making us aware.
We had a Burglary in Austintown in which a tanned skinned male (possibly Hispanic), neatly dressed and groomed, arrived at the residence of an elderly couple advising that his landscaping company was going to be cleaning up the adjacent, undeveloped property around their property. The male requested that the couple follow him to the rear of their property to verify their property lines/pins. The male (suspect) was on his cell phone several times during the visit. This went on for approximately 15-20 minutes and ended with the male stating that he had to leave and take care of a large tree that had just fallen at another location. Said male then rushed to his vehicle in the driveway and sped off. The next day the couple notice that some jewelry was missing from a bedroom dresser and a large amount of cash was missing from an office in the basement. No signs of forced entry were observed anywhere at the residence, and nothing was left out of place.
The description of the male is: possible Hispanic male, 25-30 years of age, 5′ 10″, 140 lbs., neatly dressed and groomed, said his name was “Joe”.
Vehicle description is: newer pick-up truck (full-size, unknown make/model), gray or light tan in color, extended cab, Ohio plates (unknown numbers).
If anyone has had, or has, anything similar to this happen in their jurisdictions please forward any information to me. Call 330-759-1315 Liberty Police Thank you in advance.

Stay safe, keep your neighbors safe –thanks Chief
