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

2013 General Elections

September 9, 2013

2013 General Election
In passing years, the Liberty Business Association partnered with the Liberty Schools Parent & Teacher Association to offer to the public during general election years a Candidates Night. This was a success for many years but became less so do to the news and social media that is available now. We did not offer it one year and we were deluged with complaints and many thought this was an offering that was due them. We explained our position at a Trustee’s Meeting and brought it back for our last election. Unfortunately we had a grand total of 11 people show up. There were more candidates than people. It was embarrassing but we were not the only ones. Cortland had only 7 people show up. The LBA and the LSPTA will no longer offer these forums. Today we have extended voting days, longer absentee voting, early voting and by the time we have the forum, many have already voted. The LBA is exploring other venues and would welcome suggestions as to how we can assist our community to participate in our governing process.
2013 Ballot– There are 2 openings for Trustee and 3 people running for those positions. All three are on the ballot. Jason Rubin, Stan Nudell and Greg Cizmar. There are 3 openings for The Liberty Board of Education. None are on the regular ballot. There are 3 “write In” candidates running for the 3 positions. They are Carmen Faustino, Calvin Jones, and Gloria Lang. There is 1 issue on the ballot for Liberty only. A 1.25 mills additional 5 yr levy to commence in 2013 for the Road Dept.
I, hope to be elected and I look forward to serving on the board with both these gentlemen. Please allow me the privilege of commenting on the candidacy of Carmen Faustino. There have been some comments made that he is too young and inexperienced. First, whatever you think, he had the courage and the desire to better his community and he stepped forward when no one else did. Beyond that, for those of you who have forgotten or who never knew, during the first year of my first election to the BOE, I proposed that we add to our board 2 members of the student body, male and female as honorary members as did many schools such as Warren and Youngstown to give us a new and much needed dimension with regard to the feelings and suggestions of the student body. First, no one on the board believed this was being done by others and after an initial laugh, and it was discovered that this was common practice, it was dismissed. I am delighted to have Carmen in the mix and I look forward to a new outlook, a breath of fresh air and the luxury of having youth represented by someone coming on with no baggage or agenda other than his schools and community. If anything, I wish we had more of him.

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
