Police: Man uses juvenile to hide pill bottle


BEREA — Police say man was spotted stealing mail

Devon Coil, 19, was arrested Thursday, Jan. 17, and charged with theft of mail matter.

On Jan. 8, “Officers responded to the 100 Block of East Haiti Road in reference to a male subject going through people’s mail boxes,” Reed said.

Police located Coil on Chestnut Street where he was positively identified.

“He did not have any mail on him but admitted to officers that he had been going through mail boxes,” Reed said. “After speaking with him, officers met with a witness who observed what had happened.” Officers also located some mail in a nearby field where Coil was believed to have discarded it, Reed said. An arrest warrant later was obtained and Coil was arrested and charged.
