The Carroll Township Police Department and Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department are investigating the theft of credit cards from a woman who left her purse in her car while at work.

According to police, the theft occurred Oct. 17 while the car was in the parking lot of the Wild Wings Restaurant & Lounge, 9055 State Route 2. A window had been smashed and cash and credit cards were reported stolen.

Surveillance video shows a female suspect using a credit card at a Speedway store in Northwood, the sheriff’s department said.

A male and another female may also be involved in the use of the stolen cards, Detective Amy Harrell, of the sheriff’s department said, adding the cards have been used to purchase gift certificates at Sears at the Woodville Mall, Lowe’s stores in Toledo and Fremont, and a Kohl’s store in Perrysburg.

Anyone with information about the case should contact the Carroll Township Police Department at (419) 898-4906 or Detective Harrell at the sheriff’s department (419) 734-4404.

Cardinal Stritch volleyball coach John Kazmaier and Northview coach Tony Geer are no strangers.

They coach together in the same club with Glass City Volleyball, and they were asked over the summer if they wanted to get their teams together to raise money for charity.

On Aug. 20, Stritch and visiting Northview raised more than $1,600 for the Family and Child Abuse Prevention Center of Northwest Ohio.

The event was sponsored by Glass City Volleyball, a Junior Olympic-style program that runs from January through May. Kazmaier, in his first season at Cardinal Stritch, coaches a 17-year-old squad with Glass City, which competes in Ohio, West Virginia and Western Pennsylvania.

Plans to extend an electric transmission line to serve a new substation at St. Charles Mercy Hospital are at an impasse, according to Trent Smith, regional president of Toledo Edison.

Smith, who spoke at an Oregon council meeting on Oct. 26, said the stalemate is due to the city’s desire to have poles and lines that are aesthetically appealing, which increases the cost of the project.

The city had initially preferred an underground line, but it was later deemed too expensive.

Steel poles, which don’t have the unsightly guide wires that wood poles have for support, were also expensive.

“In my years of working for First Energy and Toledo Edison, this is one of the more challenging projects that we have come across,” said Smith. “When I say we, I mean the city, Toledo Edison as well as St. Charles,” said Smith. “There’s been a great amount of teamwork, a great amount of communication. Unfortunately, we have reached a little bit of an impasse.”

An autopsy on the body of a woman found in Lake Erie near Oak Harbor has determined the cause of death but law enforcement officials Thursday said they weren’t disclosing how she died until the investigation has proceeded further.
 
On the evening of Thursday, August 27, the Ottawa County Sheriffs Office received several calls concerning the identity of the victim found at Lamberjack’s Marina in Carroll Township on Tuesday evening.
 
The callers saw pictures of the tattoos on the victim during local news broadcasts at 5 p.m. and recognized them as being those of a family member. Ottawa County detectives met with family members, including her mother and brother, in Toledo on Thursday evening. They positively identified the victim from photographs of the tattoos and surgical scars on the body.
 
The victim has been identified as Jennifer L. Snively, 26, of 1132 Earl Street, East Toledo.

The City of Toledo awarded two grants to upgrade the façade of two buildings on Main Street in East Toledo.

Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner announced the grants at a press conference on Tuesday.

The Merrit Building, at 113 Main Street, and the Friedman Building, at 117 Main Street, need new roofs, windows and a coat of paint, according to Bob Krompak, economic development specialist with Neighborhood Housing Services. NHS informs commercial property owners of eligible grants, helps with grant applications, provides consultation and arranges financing and technical assistance.

The Merrit Building was completely unusuable, he said, as were the second and third floors of the Friedman Building.

“They needed general façade work to upgrade the look of the buildings,” he said.
