Winter storm update; Ohio boy denies stealing search dog; Shooting at Orange hotel


 
  • Winter storm update
  • Ohio boy denies stealing search dog
  • Shooting at Orange hotel
  • Winter storm update
    The region’s first big snowstorm of the season was originally expected to dump a foot of snow or more.

    Cleveland’s official snowfall count this morning is around 6 inches. Parts of the snowbelt measured almost 10 inches of snow in northern Geauga county.

    Northeast Ohio escaped the worst of the winter weather thanks to a developing East Coast system that stole some of the thunder of yesterday’s storm.

    Quite a few cancellations this morning at Cleveland Hopkins, and a few at Akron – Canton. Flights later today seem to be on schedule, but airlines encourage fliers to call and check first.

    Akron has issued a Snow Emergency Parking Ban for ALL CITY STREETS until Saturday at 6:00 a.m., which means the City has the power to tow cars parked on city streets if they impede snow clearing operations. 

    Drivers across Ohio continue to pick their way around slick spots left by the storm, which caused at least one death -- a woman who died after losing control of her car on an interstate near Cincinnati.

    Ohio boy denies stealing search dog
    A 13-year-old boy from Willoughby entered the equivalent of not-guilty pleas yesterday to charges that he stole a search-and-rescue dog.

    The boy was accused of stealing the dog in Kirtland in September, when he was 12. He was charged with theft of a police dog and grand theft, both felonies. He also faces misdemeanor counts of harassing a police dog and criminal mischief.

    The dog is part of Big Creek Search Dog Team, which assists law enforcement and other agencies in searching for missing people.

    The dog's owner, Willis Rosch, told the newspaper he wants the youth prosecuted "to the fullest extent of the law."

    Shooting at Orange hotel
    Police in Orange Village are investigating a shooting that happened during some sort of robbery attempt at the Marriot Hotel off I-271 Thursday morning. The suspect was caught a short time later, but no names have been released.

    Sports
    In sports, the Cavs are off tonight after a win over the Washington Wizards on Wed. The Atlanta Hawks come to the Q tomorrow night at 7:30.
