Four people were arrested June 23 after the a Detroit Road store employee saw two men acting suspiciously and called Westlake police.
When officers arrived around 3:27 p.m., the employee pointed out the men's car. Inside was an open beer. Officers stopped the two walking nearby. One, a 35-year-old Cleveland man, had three wallets with three driver's licenses and six credit cards belonging to other people of different sexes and races. He tried to run, but he fell down and then resisted being handcuffed. He is facing charges of receiving stolen property, resisting arrest and forgery (for having a fake Ohio driver's license with his photo and someone else's personal information).
The other one, a 35-year-old Euclid man, faces receiving stolen property and open container charges.
As this was going on, a red Jaguar drove by the scene slowly. When officers ran the license plate, they discovered the owner had an outstanding warrant from Euclid police and an suspended license.
Both the owner, a 38-year-old Cleveland woman, and a 35-year-old Richmond Heights woman who was driving (with a suspended license and an outstanding warrant from Chagrin Falls police) were arrested after eight more credit cards in the names of three other people were found in the car.
Both were charged with receiving stolen property. The driver was cited for driving under suspension, front license plate required and a child restraint law violation for a child in the car not being in a safety seat.
Westlake police are investigating any possible connection between the two men and the women.
