Theft suspect apprehended

Posted on April 25, 2017 at 1:22 PM by Laura Oldham

At approximately 2:45am, officers were dispatched to the 1200 block of Oakland Ave on a suspicious person in a resident’s backyard. The reporting party stated the individual appeared to be looking in her car windows and preparing to commit a theft offense to her vehicle.

When officers arrived in the area, an individual that matched the description was observed. The suspect immediately began to flee from the officer on foot. The officer was able to catch up to the suspect after he attempted to run through residential yards. The officer had to subdue the man with the use of pepper spray. The suspect was taken into custody without further incident. He was found to be in possession of property that is believed to have been obtained through the commission of a theft offense.

The suspect is identified as Christain M. Worley, 24, of Hilliard, Ohio. Worley was treated by the Grandview Heights Fire Department, and he was then transported to Franklin County Jail on charges of Obstructing Official Business and Criminal Mischief, both misdemeanors. In addition to the criminal charges that were filed, Worley was found to have numerous warrants for his arrest on charges of domestic violence, assault and aggravated menacing.

Anyone with additional information is requested to contact the Grandview Heights Police Department at 614-488-7901.

Tire thief caught

Posted on April 12, 2017 at 9:44 AM by Laura Oldham

On April 11, 2017, at approximately 2:42pm, officers were dispatched to the 800 block of Grandview Ave regarding an individual that was acting suspicious in a business parking lot. Officers located the person, later identified as Jason Christian, DOB 11/20/1984. Christian was in the process of removing lug nuts off of a parked vehicle. He attempted to leave when officers were observed approaching but was quickly detained. Christian is a known theft suspect in Grandview Heights and other neighboring jurisdictions.

Two tires with rims and several cement blocks were observed in the back seat of the vehicle that Christian was driving. A vehicle was located behind a nearby business that was sitting on cement blocks and two of the tires had been removed. The tires that were in Christian’s back seat matched the other two tires on the vehicle. The victim reported that he had just purchased the tires less than two weeks ago.

Christian was interviewed and admitted to stealing the tires. In addition, prior to committing this theft offense, Christian was at the Grandview Heights municipal building where he had a 1:00pm mayor’s court hearing for a previously issued traffic violation.

Christian was charged with one count of theft and one count of possessing criminal tools, both felonies of the 5th degree.
