Cera Plumley, 24, was charged with aggravated menacing Tuesday afternoon at her house on the 1800 block of East 30th Street following an incident with James Kimbro Jr., 20, who was charged with obstructing official business for the same incident.

About 4 p.m. Tuesday, police spoke with Kimbro at his house on the 2100 block of East 30th Street. Kimbro — who initially told police his last name was “Henderson” — said that a woman knocked on his door earlier in the day and when he answered, she entered his house, holding a black revolver and yelling.

Kimbro’s girlfriend, who was in the house at the time of the alleged incident, identified the woman as Plumley.

Plumley told police she went to Kimbro’s house to pick up her children and when she was inside, Kimbro started yelling at her and saying he had a gun. Plumley told Kimbro that she also had a gun but left it at home when she went to pick up her children, according to the report.

However Plumley changed her story when police told her that Kimbro had described the gun that Plumley allegedly had with her when she went to his house, according to the report. Plumley then admitted to police that she had a gun when she went to Kimbro’s house but she left the bullets at home.

Police found the gun in Plumley’s room and charged her with aggravated menacing, according to the report.

Police went back to Kimbro’s house and charged him with obstructing official business for lying to them about his name.

Kimbro was taken to Lorain City Jail and then transported to Ashland County Jail for an outstanding warrant. Plumley was brought to Lorain County Jail where she was being held until she was released on bond Tuesday night.
