Tyler Ellis, 30, of Lorain, is accused of breaking into Fuel Mart, 430 Oberlin-Elyria Road, during the early morning hours of Aug. 3 and stealing numerous cartons of cigarettes. He was identified by the public after surveillance photographs were shared with the media, according to the Lorain County Sheriff’s Office.

Ellis turned himself in to the sheriff’s office on non-related warrants. He is being charged with theft and breaking and entering, both fifth-degree felonies, through Elyria Municipal Court.

      Because there is no room. From what I have read, you make room for violent offenders first. As to the rest of the pecking order, that is determined by income, having an Attorney that you pay for is a big advantage. Don’t forget the judge was a practicing attorney themselves at one time. If you are white or black, if you are Female or male. I witness crime here in the city of Lorain, and the dispatcher will cut you off at the call. It is like they are purposely discouraging you from calling. The other day I witnessed a truck dumping their garbage into the Family Dollar dumpster, normally I would have called, but I am sure the dispatcher would have blown that off also. So at least in the city of Lorain, it is a lesson in futility to call the police.
