Police report child inside stolen car
NILES - Police were on the lookout for a stolen vehicle that was believed to have had a 2-year-old boy in the back seat when it was taken Thursday night, a 911 supervisor confirmed.
Details were sketchy. However, according to police scanner traffic, someone took the vehicle shortly before 11 p.m. in the Niles area.
Police scanner traffic indicated that officers planned to do a car-by-car, and possibly a house-by-house, search.
Police also indicated they planned to search parking lots in case the suspects realized a child was in the vehicle and decided to "dump it," according to scanner traffic.
The search was continuing at press time.
Niles man gets a year in sex case with teenager
WARREN - A Niles man was sentenced to one year in prison after pleading guilty to unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.
Larry McMillion, 54, was charged with the third-degree felony since he was more than 10 years older than the 15-year-old girl with whom he had sexual relations on Jan. 3, assistant county prosecutor Gabe Wildman said.
If a defendant is less than 10 years older than a victim, the law calls for a fourth-degree felony version of the same charge.
Wildman said McMillion knew the victim, who reported the sex act at McMillion's North Road home and had been on bond until he was sentenced Thursday by Trumbull County Common Pleas Judge John M. Stuard.
The judge also found McMillion to be a Tier II sex offender, requiring him to register his whereabouts with authorities twice a year for 25 years after he is released from prison.
