JUST IN: Three Men Caught Breaking Into Twinsburg Cars

The information in this report is from the Twinsburg Police. An arrest does not mean a conviction.

Three men were arrested and charged in a string of car break-ins when they were found by Twinsburg police hiding inside a car early Friday morning, according to a news release.

Charged with felony theft and receiving stolen property were: Joshua Elliott, 21, of Warrensville Heights; Jeremiah Elliott, 20, of Shaker Heights; and Jordan Houston, 19, of Richmond Heights. They were taken to the Twinsburg jail and will be arraigned by video today.

According to Police Chief Chris Noga, At about 2 a.m. Friday morning police received a call from the Highlands subdivision off of Liberty Road on a report of people breaking into cars.

The officers discovered several unlocked cars parked in driveways that had been entered. A number of items were missing, including a laptop computer, cell phones, sunglasses, electronic device chargers, and cash and gifts cards, according to police.

None of the cars were locked.

At about 2:50 a.m. a Summit County sheriff's deputy was searching at the corner of Evans Way and Pam Court and foound three men in black clothing crouched down and hiding in a car, according to police. Police also found items on them that matched those that were reported missing.

One of the arrested men told police that they only entered unlocked cars, and came to Twinsburg because "they knew people had money out here."

Noga said the break-ins should be a reminder that people need to lock their car doors.

"This was great work by both our officers and Summit County deputies," he said. "However, these crimes were preventable. We encourage our residents to take their valuables out of their parked vehicles and to lock their cars while they are in their driveways."

Errrr I'm not finished either. They have alot of nerve. "They picked Twinsburg because they knew people had money" . I worked in all of the cities that these three are from. Those cities chose to allow Section 8 to house people like this and those cities are paying the price. There are murders, rapes, robberies etc . Cleveland Heights is another city who wanted to be politically correct and they to have had to up the Police Protection in areas that never needed extra protection before. When you GIVE people things they think they are " entitled " to anything they want. Twinsburg Police don't play thugs. I hope they keep them in jail for a long time and I hope a few have warrants so they stay even longer. The reason people have money in Twinsburg is because they work hard for their money. Keep your nasty hands off anything that doesn't belong to you

just because they are african american dose not mean they are on Section 8 I actually know for fact neither one of them are on Section 8 and one of them actually lived in Oakwood near that area and pay just as much as everybody else your skin color does not determine your assets

I live in The Highlands and would be curious to know where the thefts occurred. Can you give more details? At least a street?

Did I say anything about skin color in my post? Trash is Trash. Go into the Sheetz gas station ( Rt 82 in Twinsburg ) at night and you can see plenty of White trash walking around in their pajamas. Oakwood is just as bad as any of the " Heights". Plenty of people in Twinsburg who live in the development off Ravenna and Belmeadow/Chamberlin have moved because of the" trash " in Oakwood. The Motel on Ravenna houses "Trash" who have been in the Twinsburg paper for arrests made for Meth labs, domestic disputes and more and both times it was Blacks and Whites committing the crimes. Bottom line is this. People at one time moved to the suburbs to get away from crime...they paid with REAL money to get away from crime riddled areas, so what does the govt do they move the " trash" into areas that are or were free of crime because everyone should be treated equally. NO THEY SHOULDN'T !!!! People educate themselves and find good paying employment to live in those areas so their kids can get good education and we shouldn't have to live with them just because they can't do it on their own.

God help these children of yours. They do not know what they do. If only they see the picture clearly. If only they see the whole picture. Everything we do is not the best way. Lord show love to these brothers in your own way. Help us see that its a better way.

Everybody is talking about the perpetrators here?!?!?! What about the people who left the expensive items in their cars and left them unlocked outside?? They are just as much to blame!! This not the 1950's anymore where you can leave your car unlocked outside and run to the store and leave your house open!! Those times are gone. If you leave your car unlocked outside you are just inviting trouble in whether they are from outside of Twinsburg inside Twinsburg. Some of these people are living in a fantasy world, WAKE UP!!!

Great work Twinsburg police. We love your faces. As far as "eddy Munster" and "duchess" are concerned, your ignorance is well shown in your statement. And I read 2tooblonde's post over and over and not one fiber of race was discussed. I guess guilty conscious played a role there. And let's not forget the smarts of the residents who assisted the Twinsburg police by making the call. Love your faces too

Hi Babita: The details in the report are all the details the police have released so far. There were likely be more information in the police report and, once I get it, I will write a follow-up.

I agree that Section 8 ruins a city...look at Bedford. What ussed to be a nice little commun ity 12 yrs ago has turned into the trashy stomping grounds for lowlives. These thug wannabes ruin a city and you can bet your bottom line that Bedford regrets going Secction 8. Let's hope Twinsburg makes an impact by NOT following suit.
too2blonde December 08, 2012 at 04:33 PM
IT ISN'T THERE'S TO TOUCH YOU IDIOT !!! You are exactly why they feel entitled in the first place. Quit making excuses for these people.
babita tiwari December 09, 2012 at 02:52 AM
Thanks Chris! It was great that the police nabbed them so quickly.
Dirty30 December 10, 2012 at 04:12 AM
Guess what those thugs won't do?.......Rob Twinsburg again!!!!!!
Nassman December 10, 2012 at 01:36 PM
You can't argue with ignorance T2B. I love how the race card is always used to defend these slackers. Why can't some people just denounce the bad actions of their friends instead of pulling the race card to defend them?
Nassman December 10, 2012 at 01:39 PM
These thugs underestimated the response time of Twinsburg's PD and must have assumed that it was similar to their hoods. Keep this in mind residents when asked to support your city services.

I have read everybody comments. If you read the report you can tell that something is wrong with the boys. What kind of answer was that to give the policemen. "People in Twinsburg have money" Now I know personally that the two brother should be on medication, but they donot take any because when they turned 16 and felt like they did not need medications anymore. And guess what "The System " stated that they did not have to take the medication if they refuse to take it. Instead of the system telling them that the reason you feel the way that you are feeling is because of the medication. No they allowed the children to do what they wanted to do and now look. Same thing with the young lady that kill her 3 year old son. I also knew her. Some where along the way the 2 brothers and the young lady were fail by the system. I donot know anything about the 3 thug. I really do believe that you are responsible for your own actions. If you cannot do the time please do not do the crime. I want everyone to remember we all are "working people" .
Jane Doe December 20, 2012 at 06:16 PM
Wow. All these comments are really sonething. I personally know all three & have talked to them & they cant explain what was going through their heads. People are people at the end of the day. They all made decisions that led them to this but what people are failing to see is that this is a cry for help. People shouldnt just flip out or begin to go off. You should see that they honeatly hust need help and prayer. What they did was FAR from right but maybe it was their only way to reach out. I pray for all three everyday because God doesnt JUDGE anyone no matter what the circumstances are. " Let thou who never sinned throw the first stone " Pray dont judge
Dirty30 December 22, 2012 at 02:59 AM
Wow, Jane doe and Katherine James sure do know a lot if trash. So it's no excuse why they defend them. Gota love loyalty. How bout this? How bout the fact that I pay, you pay, my neighbor pays, and your neighbor pays for this "system" that you criticize. A system that I personally know is a failure because individuals such as the three dummies and this woman who you know killed her own child, refuse to cooperate with it and defy it. So much that its truly an effort to avoid "this system". It's actually brilliant how they manipulate it and avoid it. I don't blame the system per say. There are some faults. No dowt. But what happens when the three little turds come knocking ony door and try to enter my house, cause they've graduated to a higher level. And what happens when I excersise my 2nd amendment rights (that's right to bear arms in case the system didnt teach you that) because I love my wife and children more then life itself, and I clobber the three turds. Who will you blame? The system, them, or me? Enjoy your holiday
