Wickliffe Police: Car driven by fleeing suspect collides with cruiser

A Cleveland man faces multiple felonies after trying to flee from Wickliffe Police on Wednesday.

Ronald D. Harris, 19, was allegedly observed selling heroin in the McDonald’s parking lot located at 28711 Euclid Ave., said Lake County Narcotics Agency Director David A. Frisone.

Along with the Wickliffe Police Department, authorities tried to arrest Harris, but he attempted to flee in a Saturn Ion. He collided with a Wickliffe Police cruiser, causing damage to both vehicles, said Frisone.

Upon searching the scene, officers found two grams of heroin and hundreds of dollars in cash. No one was injured during the arrest, he said.

Harris, of 468 East 147th St., was charged with felony trafficking in heroin and felony failure to comply with police orders, according to Willoughby Municipal Court records.

Magistrate Judge Almis Stempuzis set Hariss’s bond at $50,000 cash or surety. A preliminary hearing has been set for June 27.

A similar arrest was made by Wickliffe Police and the LCNA on Tuesday.

Police arrested Albert D. Walker, 20, of Cleveland, at the Mosley Select Suites on Euclid Avenue.

Walker allegedly tried to sell one gram of heroin at the hotel while a juvenile was also in the vicinity of the incident, according to court records.

Walker, charged with felony heroin trafficking, is also set to return for a preliminary hearing on June 27.
