An alleged theft by a manager at a local pizzeria spurred an investigation which has resulted in the case being bound over to a grand jury.

Christopher Flint was alleged to have given himself a “large raise,” according to Cleveland Police Department Detective Bill Parks.

After owners of Luigi’s Pizza, located at Bradley Square Mall, noticed deposit shortages, they contacted CPD, which in turn began looking into the “missing deposits.”

Parks said after interviewing Flint regarding the missing deposits, he allegedly “confessed to the theft and had given himself a large raise.”

Flint was charged with theft over $1,000 after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

According to Parks, the case was bound to a grand jury from Bradley County General Sessions Court. Flint turned himself in at the Bradley County Jail earlier this week.

- Bradley County Emergency Medical Service paramedics responded only a short distance from one of their stations Wednesday after a collision involving two cars.

One of the cars was overturned in the roadway on Paul Huff Parkway near the main BCEMS station, according to reports.

Stan Clark, information officer for BCEMS, said none of the people involved in the crash were transported to the hospital.

Bradley County 911 reports indicated that initial information called for a response from the Cleveland Fire Department regarding possible entrapment.

CFD firefighters, whose main station is located nearby as well, responded; however, all of the people involved were out of their vehicles on their arrival, according to the report.

Paul Huff Parkway was partially shut down as the crash investigation and cleanup was completed.

Cleveland Police Department officer Jacob Varnell is in charge of the crash investigation.
