Other thefts:

• Officers were called April 10 to the 80 block of Logston Heights, Berea, in reference to a theft. An AC unit, worth $5,000 had been stolen from the rear of a vacant home.

• Officers met with a complainant April 9 at the Berea Police Department. The person told police several of his checks were stolen from his residence. Someone had forged his signature and the checks were cashed. Estimated loss is $1,060.

Misdemeanor arrests

From April 11 to Saturday, Berea police imposed several misdemeanor charges, including two people for driving under the influence of alcohol (first offense), one person for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia and one person for driving under the influence of alcohol (second offense.)

Misdemeanor offenses are lesser charges than felonies and carry a maximum sentence of 12 months in prison. The Richmond Register does not typically name people who are charged with misdemeanors.
