Cleveland Police Department investigators are looking into a robbery which reportedly occurred Wednesday in the parking lot of a local business.

Investigation is continuing after a woman reportedly met the suspects in the parking lot of Lowe’s on Paul Huff Parkway, to sell a laptop computer.

According to Lt. Robert Harbison of the Criminal Investigations Division, three suspects took the computer without paying the victim. They fled the scene and were later taken into custody by law enforcement. Additional information will be released as it becomes available, according to Harbison.

- Bradley County deputy Cru Ross responded to a Wayfarer Drive address to begin an investigation into a possible burglary.

According to his report, Marie Hartert was listed as the caretaker of the house.

Hartert told the deputy she noticed someone had gained entry to the house through a basement door.

She noticed several items had been moved around inside the home.

Ross also reported several areas of damage to sheetrock and doors inside the home.

According to Ross, several witnesses were able to provide information on possible suspects that was then passed on to the Criminal Investigations Division detectives.

Damage was assessed at $600.

- A window air conditioner and weed cutter were reportedly stolen from the Bicycle Center located on Urbane Road.

According to a report filed by deputy Paul Singleton, Randall Barnes, an employee of the business, said someone entered the office area and took a General Electric air conditioner and a Weedeater string trimmer.

The incident reportedly occurred sometime between Saturday and Tuesday, and loss was estimated at $1,100.
