The male shown in these photographs is unlawfully using multiple victims’ account and PIN information to access their checking accounts at various ATMs in the area. We surmise that the account information was collected using a “skimming” device where an illegal card reader is attached over payment terminals, like ATMs or gas station pumps. If you recognize this male, please contact the investigating detective at (440) 887-7316. A few tips to combat this type of scam: Keep an eye on your bank account for suspicious activity, select “credit” as a form of payment not “debit” at gas station payment to avoid using your PIN, carefully inspect the card reader before making your transaction, go inside the gas station to make your payment with the clerk when possible, and TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS: If in doubt, use another gas pump or ATM terminal.

The Parma Police Department will be conducting an OVI / Sobriety Checkpoint on Friday, August 17, 2018. The specific location and times will be announced on the day of the event.

Parma Police and members of the U.S. Marshals Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force have arrested a Parma man, who was wanted in connection with an incident that occurred on March 23rd in Parma. Antonio D. Boddy, age 26, listing an address in the 9600 block of Pleasant Lake Blvd, was arrested yesterday by Parma Police and U.S. Marshals Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force in the area of E. 96th Street and Miles Avenue in Cleveland. Boddy was later taken to the Cuyahoga County Jail. Boddy was arrested on warrants charging him with two counts of felonious assault on police. On March 23, 2018, Parma detectives were assisting another law enforcement agency with an investigation in the area of Pleasant Lake Apartments. Boddy, who at the time was wanted on an arrest warrant through the Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Office for probation violation, was observed in the area. When two Parma detectives approached the car and attempted to arrest Boddy, he jumped into the car being driven by his girlfriend, Chelsea Alexander, who fled from the scene nearly striking both detectives with her car. Boddy and Alexander fled the area and led Parma Police on a pursuit which was eventually terminated on Interstate 77 in Independence. Alexander later turned herself in to Parma Police and has been charged in connection with this incident. The Parma Police Department would like to thank the U.S. Marshals Service and the members of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force for their assistance with capturing Boddy.
