On April 26, 2010, police responded to a call of stolen tools from Ahuja Medical Center construction site located at 3995 Richmond Road in Beachwood. Workers found that a drill, Makita grinder, and heat gun were all stolen from the 6th floor of the building. The tools were locked in two separate steel boxes that were secured with padlocks.

The workers also found that two compound miter saws and a chipping hammer were stolen from the 1st floor. These tools were chained together and locked. The tools were valued at a total of approximately $2,970.

In a separate case, on May 5, 2010, Vladimir Vysotskyy, 20, of North Royalton, and Stephan Yurtsan, 20, of Parma Heights, removed 42 aluminum bleacher seats from the baseball diamonds located at Veteran’s Memorial Park in Parma. The defendant’s then sold the seats as scrap metal.
