Waitress gets own ID when carding patron

WESTLAKE, Ohio - A bar waitress checking to see if a woman was legally old enough to drink was handed her own stolen driver's license, which was reported missing weeks earlier, police said.

"The odds of this waitress recovering her own license defy calculation," police Capt. Guy Turner said Monday.

Maria Bergan, 23, of Lakewood, was charged Sunday night with identity theft and receiving stolen property. She was arrested at her home in suburban Cleveland and was jailed in Westlake to await a court appearance.

The 22-year-old waitress, whose name was not released, called police last week and said she had been handed her own stolen driver's license by a woman trying to prove she was 21. The woman, who became suspicious of the delay as the waitress went to call police, fled the Moosehead Saloon, but her companion provided her name.

The waitress said she had lost her wallet July 9 at a bar in Lakewood.
The victim also had a credit card stolen. The stolen card has been used to make $1,000 in purchases, Turner said.

Police follow footprints, make arrest in burglary

A burglar smashed his way into a convenience store on Jefferson Street and fled, leaving tracks in fresh snow for police in pursuit.
The burglar alarm at the Taco Maker store went off about 2 a.m. Monday, Monticello police said. Officers arrived to find that a window and the door had been smashed.
Officers William Goble and Kwane Delvalle noticed footprints in the snow and followed them though the woods to a nearby apartment complex on West Broadway.
After about 15 minutes, police found Jamie Oliveris, 25, lying down on an alcove outside the second floor of the West Broadway Villas building.
Sullivan sheriff's deputies and state police assisted.
Police charged Oliveris, of Monticello, with third-degree burglary and third-degree criminal mischief, felonies, and petty larceny, a misdemeanor. He was arraigned and sent to Sullivan County Jail without bail, pending an appearance in Village Court.
