Marshals raid home; no drugs found

ELYRIA TWP. — U.S. marshals found a gun and a digital scale but no narcotics during a raid Wednesday morning at the home of a suspected drug trafficker, according to a sheriff’s report.

Gabriel Turner, 29, was charged with having weapons under disability and possession of criminal tools.

Members of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force tracked Turner’s Oldsmobile to an Emerald Drive residence at about 9:25 a.m.

They had been advised by a confidential informant that Turner had a gun and a large amount of marijuana there, the report said.

Turner surrendered to officers in his garage and gave consent for the house to be searched. He told police he had a loaded .44-caliber gun in the attic with two boxes of ammunition, the report said. Police also found a BearCat scanner and a digital scale.

The case is being forwarded to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for review.

Stabbing at party under investigation

LORAIN — A Halloween party in Lorain ended in a stabbing Wednesday night.

Chadd Wilson, 22, of Lorain, told Lorain police that he and his half brother, Terry Moore, were having a Halloween party about 3 a.m. at Moore’s house on the 1300 block of Brownell Ave. when three carloads of men showed up to crash the party, according to a police report.

When asked to leave, four of the men attacked Wilson and stole his shoes before he scared them away with a small pocket knife, the report said.

Wilson told police that he might have stabbed somebody, and officers later noticed drops of blood on the sidewalk and a bloody napkin.

Neither Wilson nor Moore knew the individuals, and they told police they wouldn’t be able to identify them.

Student, 11, charged in assault of teacher

ELYRIA — An 11-year-old boy was charged with assault after his teacher told police he repeatedly kicked and punched her Tuesday at the Educational Alternatives school in Elyria.

Lorrie Buchdrucker, 33, of Elyria, told Elyria police the student bumped into her and said “oops,” before passing her a second time and kicking her, according to the police report.

The student had to be physically restrained after he passed Buchdrucker a third time and punched her in the right thigh with his fist.

The report indicated that Lorain County Juvenile Detention Court intended on issuing three felony assault charges to the student Thursday.

Student threatens violence; no charges

ELYRIA — A new student at the Educational Alternatives school in Elyria threatened violence on his first day.

School officials told police that the student had transferred to the school on Tuesday and threatened to “bring a gun to school and pop everybody,” according to the police report.

A tutor informed police that he didn’t believe the student would act on the threats and blamed the outburst on the student trying to fit in.

No charges were filed.
