  • Todd Wells, 21, of Bath Street, Elyria, was charged with murder, kidnapping, aggravated burglary and aggravated riot.
  • Tyler Wells, 23, of Cleveland, was charged with aggravated riot and an unrelated warrant for domestic violence.
  • Anthony McShepard, 21, of Fairmount Avenue, Elyria, was charged with aggravated riot.
  • Dean Martin Jr., 27, of Barbara Street, Elyria, was charged with aggravated riot.
  • Iesha Newson, 23, of Barbara Street, Elyria, was charged with aggravated riot.
  • Megan White, 25, of Garden Street, Elyria, was charged with aggravated riot.
  • Davonte Gray, 21, of Bell Avenue, Elyria, was charged with aggravated riot.
  • Richard Webber, 26, of Barbara Street, Elyria, was charged with aggravated riot.
  • Adrian Smith, 24, of Foxhill Lane, Elyria, was charged with aggravated riot.

Police were called to 1143 Garden Street around 11:30 p.m. July 1.

They had received 911 calls about gunshots in the area, and arrived at the scene to find Strupe with a gunshot wound to his back. He was taken to University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center, but died after arriving.

Markus Martin, 26, Tristen Belfiore, 17 and Anthony Marcano, 22, were charged the same week with murder, kidnapping and aggravated burglary in connection with the riot and Strupe’s murder.

Elyria Police Capt. Chris Costantino said that police believe Martin, Belfiore, Marcano and Wells forced their way into a house on Garden Street where they found Strupe and held him against his will before pulling him out of the house and murdering him.

The people charged with aggravated riot did not necessarily participate in the assault but did nothing to stop it and even encouraged it, Costantino said.

“We are confident that we got everyone who was in that area at that time,” Costantino said of the arrests, adding that the arrests are a result of hard work by detectives. “These guys have been working around the clock on this.”

The nine people arrested this week were taken to Lorain County Jail where they were being held on Wednesday. Todd Wells was being held without bond, Tyler Wells was being held on a $102,000 bond and the other seven had bonds set at $100,000 each.

I hope they get put away for a long time.these people disgust me and not only did 80% of them did not know what it was all about but felt it would “make them cool” if they got involved too.karma.nothing can take away this pain you people have caused.

    • nothingbutthetruth

      • golfingirl

        So which one of these “innocent” bystanders are you defending?

        All of them….even the Wells boys?

      • guest

        don’t you thank? proper English please.i know exactly who you are.they cant be charged with something they have no proof of.they have something against the men arrested last week in order to say these charges.and innocent bystanders? innocent bystanders would of called police asap instead of waiting for the gun shots,they wouldn’t of been there at all,wouldnt of just watched a man get beaten then shot as he tried to run.so tell me why is it you believe all people were arrested really arrested? cuz the cops were bored.i know who you are believe me and you can stop your non sense.and again with the criminal record,because he made wrong decisions met he deserved to die? does that go for all the other men involved??? give me a break,when you pull a gun and take away a life,you get punished.

        • SpaceTech

          Is there an Ebonics translator in the house?

  • nothingbutthetruth

    Wow this is jus sad PPL thanking EPD For what they did nothng but gather up innocent bystanders its sad that davion lost his life but lets not forget he was a jack boy that he robbed and beat up ppl as well he was no saint by a long shot hell he jus got out of prison for robbing someone at gun point holding the person against they will

    • Chan

      Innocent bystanders who sat by and found it entertaining for a man to be beating and murdered in front of them? You sound foolish and you said nothing on this forum to properly defend your “friends”. If he was a bad person why would you have hung around him or be anywhere he hung out? Oh because as the old saying goes “birds of a feather flock together”. The entire complex should be demolished and send all the rodents into fema camps.

      • nothingbutthetruth

        Chan you sound crazy i can tell you dont know anything about what goes on in the streets you jus commenting because you have a smart phone anyway how do you know they was getting entertainment out of it was you there ill wait……the police jus grabbing ppl who was there watchin alone with some of the victim family members so they can make idiots like YOU think that there doing their job but like i said this dude Did not deserve to loose his life at all

        • Chan

          How do I know they were getting entertainment from it? Because they stood by and watched and didn’t do a damn thing and if being from the streets mean you hang around criminal activity, living in low income housing and basically wasting away your life, I am guilty as charged!

        • guest

          if he has a smart phone its probably because he EARNED it with money he MAKES.and how would you know whoever chan is isn’t street smart? because he doesn’t share your view as to why these people were arrested.please just stop you make no sense.they were there for 1.thats what got them arrested and 2.they should of been calling the police the second arguing started instead of waiting.so yes dear some may just believe they were there to watch to be enterained

          • nothingbutthetruth

            First of all I own 4 houses and and co-own a landscaping/cleaning service i work hard everyday everything i have i EARNED i got a bachelor’s degree in marketing management and a associate in applied science from Ohio U i make MONEY even when im sleep……..anyway no one should be arrested from being in the vicinity of some BS thats like someone robbing a bank and killing the bank teller the innocent people thats in the bank who seen it happen get arrested because they were there and didnt call the police not to mentionthey went to the police station and gave statements oh in by the way no one was even talking to you

          • guest

          • golfingirl

            “….i got a bachelor’s degree in marketing management and a associate in applied science from Ohio U….”

            Ohio University DOES NOT offer a degree in “Marketing Management.” Never have.

            Bachelors Degree in Marketing, Bachelors Degree in Management, but no such combination called “Marketing Management” exist.

            Don’t know of any colleges which offer this, since it really makes no sense.

            Are you making this up? I would hope you would at least know what your degree was in, if you really have one.

            Honestly….you really do not write, spell or compose sentences anywhere near a college graduate level.

          • nothingbutthetruth

            Do you have an email address….i will gladly send you my credentials and please tell me what i spelled wrong im not here for punctuation im jus stating my opinions like everyone else

          • golfingirl

            Sure, and do you want my address and phone number too? Really?

            You can post them right on this site.

            I do have to ask….why do you write so poorly if you have two college degrees?

            It really is not anywhere near a college graduate level…..just stating the obvious. Even you have to agree with this observation.

          • golfingirl

            Are you serious…tell me you are kidding.

            For starters, you failed to capitalize the word “I” at least 4 times and it is a one letter word!

          • nothingbutthetruth

            Who cares i already went to school and graduated and paying off student loans im not getting a grade for this haha wow let me go to bed i do have to get up at 6 to go run my company in the morn

          • golfingirl

            Ok…good night.

            I’ll take your word on it.

            My son goes to OU, I hope you enjoyed your time in Oxford as much as he does.

            A great college town!

          • nothingbutthetruth

            Oxford???? You mean Athens ohio

          • nothingbutthetruth

            Oh and it seem to me that you dont know what school your son goes to miami university is in Oxford not OU i knew you wasnt so perfect after all lol

          • golfingirl

            You are correct…it was somewhat of a “trick” question.

            My oldest graduated from Miami, I currently have another entering his senior year at OU…plus one in between who went to OSU.

            Have a great weekend and stay safe.

          • nothingbutthetruth

            I will, you also have a safe weekend as well.

          • nothingbutthetruth

            In i ment to say marketing not management i was gon say something about my business that i managed in forgot to delete it it was a typo jus notice that sorry i made an honest mistake

          • golfingirl

            Please reread what you just wrote and tell me how anyone could possibly believe that was written by a college graduate?

            I don’t think I could make that many typos in a single sentence if I tried.

            Really…..please reread it.

      • brenda

        Hold on wait a minute!! Who are you to say such a thing!! Not everyone that lives out there causes trouble. I’m very sorry that that young man lost his life and I pray for his family. The one’s that they said did it, well that’s between them and God. But to arrest people because they were standing around watching is completely absorb!! If they were involved, ok. But because they were watching, they have 22 more people to go!! If there were 30people, as the paper says, where are the other 22? Why aren’t they in jail also?

        • WTFnext

          OMG get a dictionary or spell check button. “Completely absorb”???? Don’t you mean ABSURD??? Then again, sponges absorb. Most of project dwellers are nothing but sponges absorbing up tax payer dollars.

        • Chan

          Who am I? I am a law abiding tax pay who resides in the City of Elyria who’s hard earned money goes to help foot the bill for freeloading, out of wedlock birthing young adults who have sense of entitlement. Correct they will have to answer to God on Judgement Day but here on earth we have a judicial system which needs to make sure that the low lives involved in this never see the light of day again.

          • nothingbutthetruth

            Hold up Jus because ppl live in subsidies homes or “projects” dont mean they freeload or was born out of wedlock you clearly sound like a racsist i kno a lady that live in the “projects” in she is a RN at EMH university hospital. C’mon thats whats wrong with america today so quick to cloud judgment smh alot of those people have jobs or go to school jus wasnt fortunate enough to inherit things from their family’s because the ppl before them struggled this world was designed To keep the black ppl down oh and my mom is a white women in case you want to know

          • Pablo Jones

            Well if you are living in subsidized housing you are freeloading. The sad part is in a free market those places probably couldn’t even charge $100 a month. But because they are subsidized they get several times that.

            For that RN you know. Is she married and does she have a kid? An RN usually makes $40,000+ which would put he well out side of the qualifications for living in subsidized housing. And if she is making that much she could easily afford a nicer place. So either you have a different classification of a project or you are stretching your story a bit.

            And just remember, you are the one that brought race into this.

          • nothingbutthetruth

            It’s Based off your income. If you don’t have a job your rent could be as low as $100. If you ‘re working and make a decent amount of money your subject to pay a certain amount of rent, which can range anywhere from $400-$600 monthly. As far as the RN i know who jus recently graduated school in march, she ‘s been staying in the projects before her career kicked off, she just started working for EMH in june. Maybe she need time to get her money together to get out of the projects. Also as far as race there is lots of white people that live in the projects, my mother stayed in the projects when i was younger and she happens to be white.

          • guest

            80% of those people do not work.they do not pay and the ones who don’t are only responsible for paying their electric bill.my mom is a RN,she makes over $30 a hour and im currently in school for nursing,the story is being stretched.there is no way they would let a RN live there

          • Chan

            RN, did you mean STNA?

    • Bob

      I am all for calling a crook, a crook. But for you to call anyone innocent that stood by and watched a man get beaten then shot IN THE BACK, is laughable.

      If they were innocent. THEN WHY OH WHY were they arrested?? If they were innocent why didn’t they turn themselves in??

      • nothingbutthetruth

        Bob right but what the media didnt tell you all is that them ppl did go to the police station thats how the police know what happened then they came back to arrest them same ppl because they needed more answersbut they making ppl think they were aactuallyiinvolvedin they wasnt

        • guest

          they don’t go around arresting people to “get more answers.” they come to your door,your work,they send you papers to show up at the station,courthouse etc.they don’t go around arresting people..like “hey you! your under arrest cuz I need more answers.” yep makes sense

          • brenda

            They did go to at least one of the nine arrested. They ask him to come to the station to talk about what went on and ARRESTED HIM FOR NO REASON OTHER THAN THEY WANT MORE ANSWERS!!!! Whoever heard of being arrested for standing around watching a fight!! That’s ludicrous!! That would be like me going to the police and saying I saw something and me getting arrested!!

          • Chan

            So he was arrested for not cooperating with a murder investigation….”Brenda” I assume one of the nine is related to you or close friends, that being said would you be on here with your cries of injustice had this been your son who was murdered and spectators stood around and did nothing?

        • Bob

          Anyone who stood there and watched a man get beaten then shot. Is just as guiltybasthe ppeople who did.

          30 people on one guy. They all sound like a bunch of cowards and deserve anything that happens to them. But of you want to defend them. Then by all means you do that.

          Sounds to me like you were one of those cowards or you know one of them personally.

          • Joe Smith

            “Anyone who stood there and watched a man get beaten then shot. Is just as guilty as the people who did”

            What? You think the armed police need armored cars and SWAT teams for one guy but untrained civilians are supposed to do something to stop a crowd of 30 people unarmed?

          • Bob

            So you wouldn’t have put you live on the line to save someone who is getting beaten?? Says a lot about you. Because I would have. But I am not a coward criminal like these people all are.

            Again, It’s the SWAT teams job to do what they do. I utmost respect for anyone who puts their live on the line everyday. Gee maybe is that why you got out of law enforcement. You were afraid you would get killed one day.

          • Joe Smith

            So I am supposed to commit suicide by trying to fight 30 people in which at least one was armed but a police officer should not to have to take any chances by having armored vehicles and dozens of officers with assault rifles to arrest one person with simple assault?

            You jumping in to help in that situation would just end up with 2 bodies but maybe your family wouldn’t miss you or you have nobody depending on you that would be abandoned if you die.

            Would you be stupid enough to jump in front of a speeding car to try to stop it from hitting someone when you have zero chance of stopping a car with your body? Same result.

            That says a lot about you, that you are inconsistent, a citizen should sacrifice himself but an officer should not take a chance.

            And I already put my butt on the line several times so you can’t say anything about me being a coward. There is a difference between being a coward and just being suicidal wasting your life. The only people I would go into a crowd like that for is a family member or a child.

            I do agree with you on one thing, 30 or even 2 on 1 is the cowards way, it was 1 on 1 in my day and I assume yours by your attitude,

          • guest

            well its a damn shame someone like you wasn’t there that night.he just might still be alive.

      • brenda

        One young man did turn himself in! He was ask to come to the police station because they wanted to ask him some questions and EPD immediately arrested him because he was there standing around. If people would read the article correctly and not assume things, but even EPD could be wrong!!

        • Bob

          He stood around and watched a man get beaten and then shot and you are defending him. He deserves whatever happens to him.

    • Sis Delish

      How did you come to That Conclusion? Were you there?

      • nothingbutthetruth

        No i wasnt but i know ppl that was there that gave the police statements of what really happened

        • Sis Delish

          Beautiful Dodge of possibly incriminating yourself. Nice.

          • guest

            she would never be there.(sarcasm) look at a comment above where she has soooo much money and a ton of education

          • nothingbutthetruth

            He you mean and i relate to all ppl i onced lived in the projects because my white family didnt approve of my mom having a black fiance which they had a kid together so they completely Cut her off i had no choice but to get things together For me and my mother thats why i have ton of education in 6 figures a year i paid my dues and taxes and im blessed

          • Pablo Jones

            So your mom had to be supported by her family and couldn’t support herself? Once they cut her off she was forced to live in the projects? You call your dad her black fiance does that mean they never got married? Did your dad not support your mother and you? If that is the case then maybe your mother’s family was right in their opinion of your dad.

            So you grew up in the projects when your mom couldn’t support herself and you still know these people? Sounds like your family has been living off the system for a long time.

          • nothingbutthetruth

            I said fiance because that was their label at the time. My mom and dad been married 26 years now. Her family was racist and just didnt approve of her being with a black man, so yea they struggled for years and neither one of them had support from their families. Now my dad is a utility specialist for ford motor company going on 17 years now and my mom is a case worker in Cuyahoga county.

          • Pablo Jones

            What you say may be the case. But base on how you described the situation and your other posts you write as if he wasn’t in the picture. The contradictions, writing style, and so forth makes your story seem just like that, a story.

          • nothingbutthetruth

            I never said my dad wasn’t in the picture. I was basically letting it be known that my mother was white so ppl didn’t stereo type me, thinking im jus this black kid taking up for thugs and criminals, thats def not the case. Also i notice how all the whites be stereo typing ppl from the “projects” thats how the subject came about.

          • nothingbutthetruth

            Oh And my mom was 17 dad was 19 when she had me, so yea she needed support from her family at the time.

        • Chan

          Let’s not forget the video recording.

        • Pablo Jones

          Well doesn’t that say a lot about the people you associate with.

          • nothingbutthetruth

            I relate to all people. I onced lived in the projects, i just so happen to get an education and 2 degrees. Now i own four houses and co-own a business. Not all people who stay in the projects are bad people, that’s something within yourself. I also grew up with some of those people, and because i got myself on track doesn’t mean im suppose to turn my back on people who knew me when i had nothing.

          • Pablo Jones

            Never the less people associate you with the people you associate yourself with. If I was good friends with a kid and he became a child molester I wouldn’t want anything to do with him. But you on the other hand stand by your friends regardless of the things they do.

          • nothingbutthetruth

            You are right. Unfortunately i know one person in this article and i know he wouldn’t hurt a fly. I don’t hang with him at all nowadays because my profession doesn’tallow me to have much free time, but i still consider him a friend or associate of mine because we use to hangout. This malay is probably the only thing on his record other than a speeding ticket. He was one of many standing around. By the way you can’t help who you know.

    • golfingirl

      And specifically which one of these people are you defending?

    • Guess

      Maybe he wasn’t a saint, does that mean he deserved to die… And they are not innocent…please explain, so it’s okay to watch a kid get beat and shot, and instead of helping they cause a riot, but hey I guess your right they are innocent…

  • Chan

    I hope they bail isn’t posted for any of these idiots and maybe just maybe these dumb girls involved will help deter other misguided females from getting involved with thugs. It’s all fun in games until the jail cell closes. I wish they could all be charged with murder.
    Lastly, the men that were involved I’m assuming has a baby mom living out there, they should immediately be evicted.

  • Sis Delish

    Perps: 11% Female; 22% Minority.

    • Mark B

      Careful you will be labeled a racist .

    • golfingirl

      Think you meant 78%, not 22%.

      • Sis Delish

        Of the Nine pictured, the stats are true.

        • golfingirl

          7 of 9 are minority, wouldn’t that be 78%?

          • Sis Delish

            Two are in the Minority of the overall population of the Nine.

          • golfingirl

            Oh, I see…you are considering the whites the minority. Sorry, had it backwards.

        • Marcus

          Wow, you can try and do stats!
          “Do you want to be that way when Jesus comes back?”

  • golfingirl

    Just goes to show that trash comes in all colors.

    We now have whites, blacks and hispanics in jail and charged with this crime.

    Both Wells boys just got out of prison in June….didn’t take them long to commit more violent acts…… couple of weeks.

    All tough guys, who will be squealing like little pigs on each other now, to try to win favor of the court.

  • Rob Bennett

    If somebody goes to an armed robbery with someone are they not charged as an accomplice to the crime whether or not they participate? If a person is killed are they not charged with murder as well even if they didn’t pull the trigger? Is this pretty much along the same lines, but yet they are charged with aggravated riot?

  • nothingbutthetruth

    And jus to make it clear im not taking up for anyone on this paper but i know the ones that were charged With aggravated rioting had nothing to do with it as far as jumping on the man beating and shooting they were spectators if thats the case EPD need to print up aggravated rioting warrant for everyone that live in westway garden’s because the whole neighborhood sat and watch to my knowledge

    • golfingirl

      “…..the whole neighborhood sat and watch to my knowledge.”

      If that was the case, then arrest them all!

      • Mark B

        How man y more will be arrested when this group rolls over , sure seems to be lots of “Snitches” .

        • guest

          one group rats out another and so on and so on so the blame seems to lighten up on them and shine the light on others.they think in someway they may be less trouble.

      • nothingbutthetruth

        Absolutely I totally agree some of them ppl was probably scared to pick up the phone and call the police thinking that samething could happen to them

    • Chan

      Your absolutely correct, EPD should arrest anyone who stood by and didn’t do anything. I don’t expect them to jump in and help but any human being would call the police plus if you live there you have atleast one kid. Where was the children when this was taken place?

    • WTFnext

      One long run-on sentence without even a period at the end. Sounds like someone should be attending English class instead of taking up for criminals. At least then you could state your case a little more eloquently.

      • nothingbutthetruth

        Who cares about punctuation im not getting graded for this stop trying to pretend like you’re smart Let me guess u must be a english major

          No one wants to read incoherent drivel. If you are going to run your mouth, at least do it properly. Believe me, punctuation is not your only problem. No need to pretend to be smart. My obvious grasp of the English language illustrates my intelligence, so I don’t need to defend myself against an obvious illiterate.

    and with all the “neighborhood watching” and a fight involving sooooo many people and “innocent bystanders” why did the “whole neighborhood” wait to call the cops?hearing the noise and screaming alone would of sent me to call 911 specially if my kids were in the house.if everyone was really watching which I doubt someone should of called the second they heard screaming from 30 people!!! not till they heard gun shots.i hope you are quite happy with your self because he is gone.and he was taken from us.we loved him so much even though he did a lot wrong.

    • nothingbutthetruth

      He shouldn’t have been killed that was wrong. And the ones who actually participated should get what they deserve. Only one person pulled the trigger, and thats what killed him. The media stated he suffer minor injuries from the fight, but again whoever laid a finger on him should be charged with something….sorry for your loss.

      • guest

        everyone shared a part by watching,as he is screaming while getting beat someone should of called 911.if the bystanders did then there could be a chance he would still be alive.i have a feeling though that no one is going to be charged in this.

  • GreatRedeemer

    Round up all of the hoodlums.

    • Chan

      Round them up and ship them out!!

  • Sis Delish

    Can anyone explain why the Brick Wall behind some of the Perps is Dark Grey and behind others a Lighter Shade of Grey?

    • Marcus

      It is called the color spectrum.
      Unfortunately, you only see white and non-white.
      But behind that retired belly and PBR Cans who could see much.

      • Sis Delish

        Color Spectrum… is that at the Sheriff’s Department or the E.P.D.?

    • guest

      they couldn’t figure out which color goes best with each of them

  • SandyLey

    Lets see how long it takes some Liberal Judge to put the trash back on the streets. How about we put them on a bus and send them to Washington DC or Chicago.

    • Starryeyes63

      or Mexico

      • golfingirl

        Sorry, the border is one way. Their criminals can come here, but ours cannot go there.

        • Starryeyes63

          Ooops My mistake =D

    • todd

      Sandy judges working for us this time. Hooray.

  • DonMega

    The men look like girls the girls look like dudes and they all look retarded.

  • golfingirl

    This “he said, she said” stuff is unreliable and tainted with prejudices on both sides.

    With all this “inside” information, how about sharing with us the reason he was targeted?

    Was it a bad drug deal, snitching on one of the assailants, maybe a fight over a girl?

    I mean, the “hood” must know the reason, they seem to know all the other details.

    I find it hard to believe this was some random act. So step up and tell us what is the word on the street?

    • golfingirl

      Hmmmmm…..no answers on that one I guess.

      The “hood” knew exactly what happened, but no one will speak to the reason this tragedy occurred.

      Maybe they don’t know as much as they think they do?

      • Chan

        Knowing that we are dealing with low income residents I’m sure it was something very minor. In the black community they kill over “disrespect”….by the way I am black (just in case you were wondering).

        • golfingirl

          Your race does not matter to me. The fact we have disagreed, but done so in a respectful manner is nice.

          Have a good day.

      • guest

        why does it matter so much to you? it was over something very minor,not criminal at all just a lie started by a crazy person.i don’t know why you feel the need to know,its not like you live there or your kids,family etc your just being nosey

        • Jeff

          Maybe because a murder took place in our city!!!! Golfingirl was just stating the facts about the hood!!!!!!!!!!!So then a person loses their life over a lie!!!!!!!!!!Wow as people didn’t even try to attempt to call 911 when it all started!!!!Nice!!!Great concerned citizens!!!Well it won’t be the first and it won’t be the last as the hood takes another young life.

        • golfingirl

          So did you provide you account of the events to the police?

          Nosey? No. Ticked off, absolutely!

          I am fed up with paying the tab for these types of behaviors, and this one will be expensive for the taxpayers….and that would include me!

          • guest

            and I get it believe me.i just don’t want to put the story out on blast.bottom line someone lied to a family member about Davion,word spread like wildfire and they went after him.has nothing to do with drugs.this “behavior” is never going to stop.not when people have access to so much s***.kids growing up specially there think they are proving themselves when they commit a crime.its a never ending cycle because 80% of people that live there do this behavior for attention,not to survive but attention.i do not see this ever ending unless the housing place is gone.all of them.

          • golfingirl

            Well said.

            Have a nice weekend!

          • guest

            have a nice weekend too:)

  • HankKwah

    They had received 911 calls about gunshots in the area….

    Is that nine hundred eleven calls or “9-1-1″ calls…..?

    Sorry, I had to.

  • michelle

    Arrest them all, let the wheels of justice sort them out. In the meantime, I would venture to say crime in Elyria might just drop a bit.

    • golfingirl

      A very temporary condition, I can assure you.

      There will soon be others to take their place.

      But a positive step for the city.

      Most of these people have long criminal records and this is just another spoke in their wheels of crime.

  • golfingirl

    Justice will play out, some will go to prison, some will be released.

    They will have to live with the consequences of their actions forever, while we will just be off to another story, soon forgetting them as they rot behind bars.

    My guess is, we will see these same names over and over again, involved in more crimes, harming more people.

    To us, they will soon be a memory, but to them, they will have to live with the life they have created.

    At their ages, most young people are having college graduation photos taken, not mug shots.

  • John Demirjian

    Just another bunch of negroes and associates giving Elyria a good name.

    • Chan

      Please look at the pictures again, there were two of yours arrested.

      • golfingirl

        This crime seemed to cover all the “racial bases.”

        Whites, blacks, hispanics.

        Oh well, criminals come in all colors, and their race does to change the fact they are criminals.

        I don’t really care which skin color looks best in an orange jumpsuit, as long as those that are guilty have the opportunity to wear that suit.

      • John Demirjian

        Those are the associates, moron.

        • Chan

          They were charged with the same crime and you may not want to call someone out their name especially when you have your real picture and name on here….also I’m sure it’s tied to a holocaust Nazi prison guard.

    • Sean MacNair

      Wow, you’re a real horse’s backside. But you have the guts to put your real name, I’ll give you points for that.

      • John Demirjian

        It is a matter of freedom of speech and the venue to vent here. I don’t have to like everyone. That much is true. Elyria is no better off for what these people got involved in. I come from an era when Elyria was a good community to live in, not some rough neighborhood where you cannot go out at night. Elyria has deteriorated in many instances, this being another example of crime in the city.

  • todd

    God bless the judges trying to protect citizens in this ghetto. Lock them all up.

    • golfingirl

      But one of the biggest problem is they don’t lock them up!

      Most are repeat offenders, given probation, early release etc. Same persons, just new crimes.

      The Wells boys, in the photo above, were both just released early from prison, about a month or so ago.
