Police arrest Streetsboro man on drug charges: Police arrested a 38-year-old Streetsboro man Sept. 24 and charged him with aggravated possession of drugs, possession of drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia after officers were dispatched to a West Overdale Drive address for a report of possible domestic violence. Police asked the woman who answered the door if they could search the house, and discovered the suspect hiding between two mattresses in a bedroom. According to the report, even though the suspect said he heard someone say "police" and "come out," he didn't because he was "scared and didn't know what was going on." The domestic violence call was later found to be just an argument with no threats of violence. The suspect was booked at the Tallmadge Police Department and transported to the Summit County Jail.
