Cleveland Police detectives are searching for a man wanted on felony forgery and theft by worthless check charges.

Warrants were issued for James Defaniel Ramsey after he allegedly forged a check on a closed business account, according to detective Matt Jenkins of CPD’s Criminal Investigations Division.

Anyone having information regarding Ramsey’s whereabouts is asked to contact Jenkins at 303-3134.

- A number of items were reported stolen from a storage unit located at 8140 Georgetown Road sometime during the past month.

A report filed by deputy Paul Allen noted Heather Underhill and her boyfriend Clayton Delaney as the victims.

Underhill last checked their storage unit during the first week in February.

When she checked it Wednesday, she noticed a brass lock had been removed and missing were a Nintendo Wii game console, controllers, games, several decorative wall mirrors, pictures, Christmas items and two sets of pots and pans.

Underhill estimated her loss at $650.

There was no damage to the storage unit, according to the report.

- An observant victim of a theft spotted her property in the back of a pickup truck and was able to help officials make a recovery.

According to a report filed by deputy John Davis of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, Callie Evans notified Bradley County 911 that she was following the truck which had a Kawasaki KX 100 motorcycle in the bed. Evans believed the motorcycle belonged to her. She had reported the cycle stolen earlier this week.

Davis was able to perform a traffic stop and began an investigation.

According to his report, the driver of the truck stated he had purchased the motorcycle for $200 and was unaware it was alleged stolen property.

Serial numbers had been scratched off the frame of the bike.

After producing photos of the bike, it was determined to be Evans’ property and was returned to her.

Investigation is continuing.
