Suspect in robberies
WARREN A 19-year-old man police had been seeking in two robberies here has surrendered and admitted to the crimes, police say.

He remains in Trumbull County Jail on two counts of aggravated robbery. He is charged with the Oct. 19 robbery of the Dollar General Store on Parkman Road in which $600 was taken and the Oct. 20 robbery of the BP service station on East Market Street in which the thief took the cash drawer but dropped it when he was fleeing. Detective Wayne Mackey said Henry surrendered last Friday afternoon and told police he wasn't the robber, but later admitted to the heists.

Vandalism by car
COLUMBIANA Police said someone damaged about 10 mailboxes, a stop sign and several yards with a car that was rigged with a rock to drive into a tree in Firestone Park. The first damage was reported about 3:30 a.m. Sunday on Duquesne Street. The vandals apparently found a key in a GEO belonging to Karen Witmer of Columbiana. The vandals eventually used a landscaping rock to wedge the accelerator on the car. Police said there was minor damage to the car, and that the stop sign had been bent back into shape.
Man exposes himself
GIRARD Police are looking for a man believed to have exposed himself and performed a sex act in front of children Saturday afternoon. According to police reports, a city man told police he went to a grocery store on North State Street, leaving his 9-year-old daughter and his sister-in-law, also a juvenile, in the car. The man told officers that, upon leaving the store, he saw a black Chevrolet Lumina with tinted windows speed from the area in which his car was parked. The children, he told police, said a man in the black car sat near them and performed a sex act on himself for several minutes before driving away.
LIBERTY A 23-year-old township man is due back in Girard Municipal Court on Wednesday for a preliminary hearing on robbery charges. Jeremy J. Everhart, of Northgate Boulevard, appeared before Judge Michael Bernard for arraignment Monday. He received a $28,000 bond. Everhart is accused of trying to snatch a 55-year-old woman's purse in the parking lot of a grocery store in the 4000 block of Belmont Avenue. Police reports say Everhart and the woman both pulled on the purse until the woman screamed and Everhart ran off. He was later found sitting in his car in the parking lot of a bank on Belmont Avenue.
