Parma Police Department News

Most people don't like visiting the dentist for a checkup. By the look on his face, K-9 Coney isn't thrilled about it either. Thank you to the kind folks at Apple Hill Animal Hospital for taking care of our four-legged officer.

Officers from the OPBA Parma Police Patrolmen’s Union collected donations from a No-shave November campaign. The Patrolmen presented a check to A Special Wish Foundation to send Ella to Disney World. Great job officers. Thanks for your effort.

– Parma Police have arrested a man in connection to the December 10th carjacking that occurred in the parking lot of the Midtown Towers apartment complex located at 5556 Broadview Road in Parma: Kevin Darnell Green Jr., age 18, lists an address in the 10000 block of Union Avenue in Cleveland. Green was charged with one count of Aggravated Robbery, a felony of the first degree. Additional charges will be considered by a Cuyahoga County Grand Jury. On December 10, 2017 at 8:24pm, Parma Police officers responded to the area of Broadview Road and Tuxedo Ave after receiving a report that a 31 year-old Parma man was chasing two men who carjacked him several minutes earlier. When police located the victim, he told officers that when he got out of his truck in the apartment complex parking lot, he was tackled to the ground by a male, later identified as Green. The victim said he was then pistol whipped on the back of his head by another male. Both Green and the other male got into the victim’s vehicle and drove off. The victim yelled for help and was able to make contact with another person who had the victim get into his car so they could attempt to follow the victim’s stolen car. This investigation is ongoing as detectives continue to follow up on additional leads and anticipate making additional arrests in this case. The attached booking photo is of Kevin Green Jr.

The Parma Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance with identifying and locating two black males who carjacked a 31 year-old Parma man at gunpoint and took his car. On December 10, 2017 at 8:24pm, Parma Police officers responded to the area of Broadview Road and Tuxedo Ave for a report of a carjacking. The incident occurred minutes earlier in the parking lot of Midtown Towers (5556 Broadview Road) and the victim was reportedly chasing after the suspects in another person’s car but lost sight of them in the area. When officers arrived, they spoke with the victim who told them that minutes earlier he was in the parking lot located in the northeast corner of 5556 Broadview Road. The victim told police that as he got out of his car, two black males approached him. One of the black males came up behind him and tackled him to the ground. A second black male then brandished a black colored pistol and then pistol whipped him with it on the back of his head. Both male suspects got into the victim’s car and drove off. The victim yelled for help and was able to make contact with another person who had the victim get into his car so they could attempt to follow the victim’s stolen car. Both suspects were said to be in their 20’s, and were wearing hoodies. The victim believes that there were two additional male suspects who were involved, but no description of them was available. Attached are photos captured from a surveillance camera that appear to show the two suspects. There was another carjacking at Midtown Towers on November 24th with a female victim. It is unknown if the two incidents are related at this time. Anyone with information relative to this incident and/or the identity of the suspects responsible for this crime is asked to call the Parma Police Department Crime Tip Line at 440-887-7340.

On October 3, 2017, the pictured couple purchased $5,800.00 worth of merchandise from Kay Jewelers at the Shoppes of Parma. The purchase was made after applying for store credit using a Chagrin Falls, Ohio man’s identity and possessing a fraudulent Ohio driver’s license. Information received, but not yet confirmed, is that these same individuals may also be involved in similar thefts in Medina County and Summit County. If you can identify, please contact the assigned Detective at (440) 887-7316.

Parma Police have arrested and charged the following individuals in connection to the July 28, 2017 armed robbery of the Gustave Julian Jewelers, located at 7432 State Road. Demetrius R. Clardy, B/M, age 42, with an address in the 2100 block of Ambleside in Cleveland. Rodney Brewer, B/M, age 51, with an address in the 2100 block of Ambleside in Cleveland. Kimberly K. Smith, B/F, age 53, with an address in the 2100 block of Ambleside in Cleveland. On October 4, 2017, members of the Parma Police SWAT Team served a search warrant on Clardy’s residence in Cleveland. Clardy was not home at the time, but was later arrested at a different location. Clardy was brought back to the Parma jail where he was charged with one count of Aggravated Robbery, a felony of the first degree. He appeared in Parma Municipal Court this morning where his bond was set at $200,000. His case was bound over to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office. Brewer and Smith were arrested back in August for their role in the robbery. They were both indicted by a Cuyahoga County Grand Jury and their cases are pending in court. On Friday, July 28, 2017 at approximately 3:27pm, Parma Police responded to a report of an armed robbery at the Gustave Julian Jewelers, located at 7432 State Road. A male subject, later identified as Clardy, was captured on store surveillance video walking into the business and brandishing a dark colored handgun. Clardy approached employees who were behind the jewelry counter. Clardy demanded money and was given an unspecified amount of cash. Clardy ran out of the store and was seen getting into a dark gray colored Ford Taurus, with an Ohio temporary tag. Detectives were able to identify Clardy, Brewer and Smith from a partial identification of the Ohio temporary registration. The Ford Taurus was also observed on surveillance video driving around the area near the jewelry store shortly before, and immediately after the robbery. Parma Police detectives have also obtained arrest warrants for the following two individuals who were also involved in the robbery of the jewelry store: David Fields, age 52, with a last known address in the 700 block of Linn Drive in Cleveland. Cleveland Gresham Jr, age 29, with a last known address in the 1600 block of Ansel Road in Cleveland. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Fields and Gresham are asked to please call the Parma Police Crime Tip Line at 440-887-7340 or Crimestoppers at 216-252-7463. See attached for photos of all five individuals.
