Akron Police are investigating several weekend and Monday burglaries.
A 41-year old Akron man broke into a local sandwich shop and ended up getting nothing but a jail cell. Officers arrested Elliot Holmes, of Thurston Street , after he was observed breaking into the Hanini’s sandwich shop, in the 1300 block of Copley Road, around 3 Monday morning. When he reached the cash register he found it empty.
Akron Police Lieutenant Rick Edwards says Holmes was identified by the manager and arrested yesterday afternoon. He was charged with breaking and entering and booked into the Summit County Jail.
Shortly before 5 Monday afternoon, the C & M Custom Car Wash, on South Case Avenue in Akron , was robbed. An employee reported he was standing behind the business near a car when the suspect approached him, pointed a handgun and demanded money. The employee handed the suspect money from his pocket and the gunman fled through the wooded area behind the business.
The suspect is a black male, wearing a dark colored hoodie pulled up over his head.
Sometime over the weekend, someone attempted to break into the Kenmore Youth Football concession stand on Battles Avenue. The suspects attempted to pry open two doors and a roll up window. Nothing was reported missing.
Shortly after Monday evening, officers arrested Clint Joachim, 34, of Garfield Heights after he was caught inside Karder Machine on Kenmore Boulevard. Joachim had bolt cutters and a flashlight. He was charged with breaking and entering and possession of criminal tools and taken to the Summit County Jail.
