Bomb Squad Called to Bath Police Station; 7-Figure Phone Scam Reported

The following was obtained from Bath police reports dated Feb. 26 and 27. It does not indicate convictions.

Nobody's fool

A Bath woman quickly grew suspicious after receiving a call from an unidentified man at 9:22 a.m. on Feb. 27.

According to the Bath police report, the caller told the woman she had just won $2.5 million, and asked her to rendezvous with his "representative" at her bank.

The woman called police and provided the man's contact information.

An officer called the man to question him, and, according to the report, he used explicit language and hung up.

The woman was advised to contact police if the suspected scam artist called back.

Call in the bomb squad

On Feb. 26 at 11:42 a.m., a local resident walked into the Bath police station with an old 75mm bullet in his hand.

The man said a friend of his inadvertently dug it up during an excavation job in Cuyahoga County.

The Summit County Bomb Squad was called and arrived at the station to pick up and properly discard the explosive round.

Why did the police call this scam artist? They should have had a woman call to arrange to meet at a bank and arrest him when he showed up. He will just move on to another person to try to scam.
