25-year-old Corey Zoss of Sterling, Ohio in Wayne County was arrested at the UPS Distribution Center on Corporate Parkway in Wadsworth after a security guard became suspicious of his actions.
Zoss was a part-time employee at the center, in charge of “sorting and loading” packages.
Lt. Wyrick says, “One night a security guard realized someone was down at the center after hours and called us.” Zoss claimed he was dropping off papers for Human Resources, but there were no papers found on the property.
Police say, at first Zoss was not “truthful”, but eventually he cooperated with authorities.
A search warrant at Zoss’s home on Kauffman Avenue in Sterling uncovered close to $300,000 in fine jewelry. Lt. Wyrick says, “much of the jewelry was still in boxes with the tags on it.” The jewelry was either being shipped to, or from Sterling Jewelers, a company with several offices including a large site in Akron, Ohio.
Some of the jewelry was headed to stores in the Fairlawn area.
Zoss was originally arrested for breaking and entering, but later a Medina Grand Jury indicted him on felony theft,a felony in the third degree. He was released on $50,000 bond. Lt. Wyrick says, he can’t understand why a veteran with a good job would throw it all away for a quick buck, “you hate to see good people make bad decisions but certainly that’s what happened here.”
They knew him simply as Ross.
He was Ross the grandfather, father and husband. Or Ross, the quick-witted security guard whom store owners and employees at the Clayton Valley Shopping Center came to rely on for comic relief during their workdays.
“I always said he should have been a comedian,” his wife Letris Ross said laughingly Friday. “He was not afraid of making a (fool) of himself.”
So when word began spreading about his death April 1, there was disbelief that someone like him could die in a flurry of gunfire.
Ross, 48, was shot to death in front of his apartment on Clayton Road, about a mile from the shopping center. His 24-year-old stepdaughter’s boyfriend, Claude Lee Mitchell, 25, is suspected in the slaying, police said. Mitchell was arrested outside of Stockton on Friday afternoon after a two-hour search.
Mitchell has a 19-month-old son with Ross’ stepdaughter, who is pregnant with their second child. They lived with Ross and his wife.
Letris Ross said her husband had been pushing Mitchell to get a job and pay his fair share of the rent. He wanted Mitchell to become a provider the way that Ross did when he raised her four children as his own, she said.
The argument continued the afternoon of April 1, when Ross followed Mitchell down an outside stairwell. Unexpectedly, Mitchell pulled out a handgun and fired a shot into Ross’ abdomen, Letris Ross said. She then heard Mitchell cursing loudly as he fired several more shots.
“He unloaded the clip on him,” Letris Ross said, adding that neither she nor her husband knew Mitchell owned a gun. “It was senseless and cruel.”
Mitchell fled, and his car was found abandoned that night in Pittsburg.
The Los Angeles-born Ross worked as security guard his entire adult life, his wife said. He enjoyed the camaraderie and protecting people, but never had ambitions for a police job.
“He said this is what he was put on Earth to do,” she said.
At the shopping center, where he worked for four years, Ross routinely checked in on businesses, store employees said. And while he was there, he’d try to lighten the mood with a wisecrack or gush about his affinity for the Oakland Raiders.
“He’d joke around and talk with us for a while,” said Linda Pineda, a teller at Travis Credit Union in the shopping center. “And he was always talking about the Raiders.”
Anyone with information about the slaying can contact Concord police at 925-671-3333, the department’s anonymous tip line at 925-603-5836, or Bay Area Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
Ryan A. Klem, 34, of 70 Campbell Ave., was arrested about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday on Third Avenue Extension, about a block from the store, police said.
Store security allegedly saw Klem shoplifting and approached him, police said. Klem grabbed the security officer and “body slammed” him into a glass entrance, police said. He then fled.
Officers spotted Klem, who ran to the nearby Target store parking lot. Bystanders slowed him down by getting in his way, police said.
Klem was captured after a brief struggle.
He was arraigned before Town Justice Kevin Engle on charges of third-degree robbery and resisting arrest, sent to the Rensselaer County Jail and ordered to be in Town Court on April 8.
A man is accused of stealing cash and more than $100,000 worth of jewelry from the Piercing Pagoda at the Town Center at Boca Raton.
Greg Zamort was arrested Sunday morning on charges of burglary, grand theft, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest with violence.
Boca Raton police said a mall security guard saw Zamort crouching down inside the Piercing Pagoda and alerted police.
A police officer confronted Zamort and chased him through the mall. Police said Zamort stopped when he approached a corridor with locked exterior doors, at which time he threatened the officer with a screwdriver.
Police said Zamort dropped the screwdriver but resisted when the officer tried to handcuff him and take him into custody.

Authorities say that a private guard was arrested after being caught by security officers at a local store shoplifting.
Police said that the woman who was dressed in a security guard uniform was observed shoplifting at Kmart.
The loss prevention officer told Covington Police he saw the woman put eight towels in her purse and on her person and attempt to leave the store.
When confronted, she told the loss prevention officer she was testing the security system.
After police arrived, the woman admitted that she had attempted to steal the towels, but said it was because she liked them and was afraid they’d be gone when she returned to the store with the money.
The towels were valued at $61.92 and the woman went to jail.
Police reports did not release the woman’s name.
Source;(WLOX) – A St. Martin High School teacher has been arrested and charged with molestation of a child under the age of 16. Jackson County Sheriff’s investigators believe he was having relations with a student at the school.
Robert Griffin, 39, of Ocean Springs, was arrested Thursday. He’s currently being held at the Adult Detention Facility awaiting a bond hearing.
Dr. Barry Amacker, Superintendent of Jackson County Schools, said Griffin taught health and physical education and has been with the school district since 2002. The original complaint about Griffin came from a parent.
“I hate it when grownups make bad decisions,” Dr. Amacker told WLOX News. “We take every action necessary to protect our kids.”
Dr. Amacker said Griffin will be placed on administrative leave with pay, pending the school district’s investigation.
As for the criminal investigation, if he is convicted, Griffin faces a minimum of two years and a maximum of 15 years behind bars.

http://www.privateofficer.com Authorities in Winston-Salem say that one of their police officers may have committed suicide this week but are still investigating the shooting.
Officers were dispatched to the home of Cpl. Kent Alan Alridge at 10:30 a.m. after Alridge didn’t report for duty, Winston-Salem police said in a statement.
Police made entry into the home and discovered the deceased officer.
Alridge, 44, of 5330 Alamo Drive joined the Winston-Salem Police Department in November 1988 after working two years as city firefighter, the police said.
Alridge’s body has been taken to the Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center for an autopsy.
As a police officer, Alridge worked in the department’s field-services bureau and criminal-investigations division.
The police department is still investigating the circumstances that led to his death and no official word has been released.
Officers from Metro Enforcement, a private security firm, conducted an identification check of all the residents in the 216-unit complex and detained six people who were later arrested by Rockford Police.
Four were arrested for criminal trespassing, one person for possession of marijuana and another for possession of cocaine, said Larry Hodges, director and co-owner of Metro Enforcement.
“We attempted to grab everyone we could for identification checks, and that’s what led to what we got,” he said.
What the 15 Metro Enforcement officers and two canines had was a melee resulting in clashes between nonresidents and Metro Enforcement officers.
“One person was shot with a Taser gun, and one officer was punched in the face,” Hodges said.
For liability reasons, Rockford Police officers do not carry Taser guns, but Metro Enforcement officers do carry the controversial weapons.
In addition to trespassing and drug possession charges, Hodges said he anticipates aggravated battery charges being filed by the Winnebago County State’s Attorney’s office.
“The state law changed two years ago where striking a security officer in the line of duty is the same charge as striking a police officer,” he said.
Concord Commons is a former Rockford Housing Authority complex that changed hands in November and is now owned by the Rockford Housing Development Corporation and managed by the Mid-Northern Management Group.
Metro Enforcement is contracted to police Concord Commons, and two other Mid-Northern Management properties, Auburn Manor and Wildberry Village, as well as all Rockford Housing Authority complexes.
“We’re just trying to get the message out that (Concord Commons) and the Housing Authority is not the place to deal drugs and take advantage of people who live there,” Hodges said.
“There’s a lot of good people who live there. There’s a lot of kids here, and we have to break the cycle. If that’s (drug dealing) all the kids see, that’s what they are going to be doing.”
Dodge County sheriff’s Capt. Tony Winborn says the parents were arrested Monday and are in jail awaiting a bond hearing. They face child molestation and pandering charges.
The Associated Press does not identify victims of sexual abuse and is not identifying the parents to protect the teen.
Winborn says 66-year-old Robert Wayne Bearden, who managed a used car dealership, was arrested on charges of child molestation and possession of a firearm by a felon.
Winborn says the couple made their daughter perform sex acts on Bearden in lieu of making payments on their minivan.
Winborn didn’t know whether any of the three has a lawyer.
Source: Fox News – Students were evacuated at Phoenix Multi-Cultural Academy in Detroit after a student reportedly detonated a homemade chemical-based explosive on the third floor of the building shortly after 8 a.m. Wednesday.
According to Detroit Public School officials, there was no fire but smoke did fill the air. Buses were brought in to transport the students while police and homeland security officials conduct their investigation.
DPS spokeperson Jennifer Mrozowski says there were no injuries and one student is being held as a suspect. The remaining 500-plus students were taken to Roberto Clemente Learning Academy for the remainder of the day.
Parents are asked to pick up their children at Roberto Clemente (1551 Beard Street) at the end of the day.
source:projo.com — The Rhode Island School of Design’s department of public safety, which provides security and EMT service to a campus of more than 2,000 students, wants the right to arrest people.
Currently, RISD campus security officers are not state-sanctioned police, meaning they only have the limited right to make citizen’s arrests, which are permissible only if the arresting citizen witnesses someone committing a felony, or when a citizen is asked to assist in the apprehension of a suspect by the police.
But a bill submitted to the state General Assembly would add RISD to the list of other entities, including state and local police departments, recognized as peace officers.
A peace officer, under state law, has the right to search, detain and arrest persons suspected of committing, having committed or about to commit a crime. Peace officers include the police forces at Brown University and the University of Rhode Island, as well as campus security at Rhode Island College.
Authorization to carry a weapon is another level of authority that RISD is not seeking, according to spokeswoman Jamie Marland. The college’s 14 officers are currently issued handcuffs, pepper spray and batons.
“The peace officer bill and that which it grants, such as additional training at the R.I. Police Academy, will provide our Public Safety officers another tool to do their jobs even better, and help them in their partnership with the Providence police and Brown police,” Marland said in a statement.
Submitted by state Rep. Helio Melo, D-East Providence, the bill has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee.
Marland said this is the college’s second try getting the authorization. RISD first submitted the request to the Assembly in last year’s session, but it was never taken up.
The request is not “in response to any particular incident, but, rather, simply in recognition of our physical configuration as an integrated part of the city,” she said. Providence Police Chief Dean M. Esserman said he had not had a chance to review the college’s proposal and declined to comment on Monday.
According to data the college submitted to the U.S. Department of Education, RISD security recorded two sexual assaults and five burglaries on campus in 2008, the most recent year available. The previous year, campus security reported four aggravated assaults and two burglaries.
The proposed bill follows the October beating of a handcuffed suspect on Benefit Street by Providence police officers.
Luis Mendonca, 20, of Central Falls, had been stopped by RISD officers Justin Wall and Sgt. William LaPierre on South Main Street, after a report of an attempted trespass at a RISD dorm.
The officers testified in District Court, Providence, that Mendonca struck both officers before fleeing. He was eventually caught by Providence police officers and beaten while restrained.
Marland, the college spokeswoman, said neither RISD officer was involved in the actual arrest or the subsequent beating and both remain on duty.

http://www.privateofficer.com/ - An Indiana woman who went to the Great Smokey Mountains with her boyfriend to get some rest and relaxation spent days of being terrorized and beaten by that same person.
Ernest H. Pyle, 45, of Milan, Ind., is being held today under a $250,000 bond awaiting trial on charges of aggravated kidnapping and resisting arrest, according to Pigeon Forge Police Chief Jack Baldwin.
Pyle allegedly held his girlfriend, 30-year-old Kathy Miller, of Cincinnati, Ohio, captive for two days before she was able to escape her binds and seek aid from a motel clerk, Baldwin said.
The chief said Pyle and Miller checked into the Grand Inn, 3206 Parkway, on Feb 18. Five days later, however, Miller told Pyle she was ready to leave, prompting an allegedly violent reaction.
Baldwin said Pyle handcuffed Miller’s hands and used duct tape to cover her mouth and bind her feet. Miller told police Pyle cut her clothing off with a knife and punched her in the stomach.
“He threatened he was going to kill her and wrap her up in plastic and leave her on the side of the road,” Baldwin said.
To reinforce his threats, Pyle went to a WalMart and bought a hammer and a pair of pliers, Baldwin said. The hammer, Pyle allegedly told her, would be used to kill her with blows to the head after he used the pliers to yank her fingernails out.
Police said that Miller was able to free herself about 9:23 p.m. Feb. 25 and ran to the desk clerk for help, the chief said. Baldwin said the clerk notified the hotel security officer for help and they placed Miller in another room and alerted police.
As officers responded to the call, the security officer met Pyle as he returned to the motel in his silver pickup truck after making a run to a store. As security was talking with the man, a Pigeon Forge officer approached and Pyle fled and had to be chased down on foot.
Baldwin said Miller was not hospitalized because of her injuries.

Authorities say that they have arrested a local teacher after a complaint was made that he inappropriately touched a teenager.
Police say that Shawn Baxley, 35 is employed as a teacher at Sherwood Christian Academy, was arrested Monday afternoon at 1:30 and booked into the county jail.
Police investigators say that a 13 year old female student told a friend about the touching incident and the friend then reported it to authorities, according to sheriff’s officers.
Baxley is charged with one account of sexual assault for the May, 2008 incident.
Baxley is being held in the Dougherty County jail.
The herb like substance can be found at local smoke shops and gas stations marketed under names like K2, Sunset Gold and Nirvana and its availability is becoming more widespread and easier to find police say.
The packaging describes the herb as “not for human consumption,” but that has not deterred those looking for a legal and undetectable high.
Dr. John Huffman a Research Chemist with Clemson University in South Carolina says, “It has the effects of THC, but it’s about ten times more potent.” One of Dr. Huffman’s students discovered a synthetic form of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, while studying the effects of pharmaceuticals on the brain.
Since synthetic THC is so new, there is no research on it’s toxicity and potential to harm smokers. Some doctors have reported users suffering from hallucinations, vomiting and even seizures.
Drug counselor Dr. Robert Margolis of Solutions Outpatient Program in Roswell Georgia said that a number of his patients have used the drug. He said, “This is easy to obtain, if you have the money and secondly it’s not detectable in a drug screening. It is addictive, it’s a dangerous drug and lastly we don’t know what the long term affects are going to be.”
Right now there are only a few states who have taken steps to ban K2 and similar drugs though more will likely introduce laws to prohibit as the awareness of this herb becomes wider known said a law enforcement agent.
Prince William County police say seven children were there at the time but they did not see the shootings and were not in danger.
Killed were 39-year-old Tonitha M. White, who ran the day care, and 49-year old Richard A. Nichols, both of Dale City, Va.
Officers found the two upstairs in the home early Monday. Police say that when the shootings happened, White’s 12-year-old daughter led the children to the basement and called police.
During the chase, Deputy Ken Collier hit a bridge abutment and rolled hundreds of feet down a freeway embankment, officials reported.
Collier, 39, was taken to Sharp Memorial Hospital where he died at 5:30 a.m., shortly after the 3:22 a.m. wreck.
The alleged drunk driver who was the subject of the chase was caught nearby, and will be charged with vehicular manslaughter and drunken driving.
“I was with his brother and sister this morning, obviously the whole family, as is the entire Sheriff’s Dept. and law enforcement family, very saddened by this tragic loss,” San Diego Sheriff Bill Gore announced.
It happened on Ezra Church Drive at about 2:30 a.m.
Atlanta police said when they arrived at the scene, they found the teen suffering from a gunshot wound to the stomach and another person grazed by a bullet.
The victims told police that someone chased them on Interstate 20 and opened fire following an altercation at a nightclub on Moreland Avenue.
Police said the shots also shattered the back glass of the victims’ vehicle and deflated a tire.
Both victims were taken to Grady Hospital.
Police said the perpetrators were traveling in a newer model Nissan Altima.

http://www.privateofficer.com- A teenager in Santa Fe, a small community south of Nashville decided that classes were getting a bit boring and wanted to get more of a charge out of them.
He apparently thought bringing a stun gun to school and shocking his classmates and himself might do the trick and now he’s under arrest.
Maury County Deputies arrested Justin Lowery, 18, and charged him with having a weapon on school grounds.
The School Resource Officer says Lowery used the stun gun during an E.M.T. training class.
According to a deputy at the school, Lowery said it was all in fun and that he never meant to hurt anyone.
No word on whether the real Emergency Medical Technicians had to be called in to treat anymore.
A Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office news release says that Robert Franklin Floyd also faces three counts of attempted murder. It was not known if Floyd has a lawyer.
Authorities say the shooting occurred early Saturday after 18-year-old GeTyron Lopez Benjamin and three others went to a bonfire party at Floyd’s house.
Floyd told investigators the Brewton group, which included two black males, had not been invited and were told to leave.
Assistant State Attorney James Parker said as the victims drove away, Floyd, who is white, ran to his truck, grabbed a rifle, and fired five shots.
Parker said two of the shots struck the vehicle and one hit Benjamin in the back. He was pronounced dead on arrival at a Brewton hospital.
Three Miami-Dade businessmen face terrorism-related smuggling charges alleging they secretly exported video-game players to a shopping center in Paraguay that U.S. authorities say served as a front for financing the Middle East terrorist group, Hezbollah.
The businessmen — Khaled T. Safadi, Ulises Talavera and Emilio Gonzalez-Neira — were arrested late Thursday on conspiracy charges of violating a post-9/11 law that prohibits any person or company from doing business with a U.S.-designated terrorist group.
Safadi, 56, owner of Cedar Distributors Inc., and Talavera, 46, owner of Transamerica Express of Miami, were arrested in Doral. Gonzalez-Neira, 43, owner of Jumbo Cargo Inc., was arrested in Sunny Isles Beach. Their export and freight-forwarding businesses were also named as defendants in the 11-count indictment unsealed Friday.
While the indictment does not identify the terrorist organization, it explicitly names a U.S. black-listed shopping and office complex in Paraguay to which the businessmen allegedly sold thousands of Sony PlayStation 2 consoles and Sony digital cameras during 2007 and 2008.
The Treasury Department has singled out the commercial mall, Galeria Page, as a funding source for the U.S.-designated terrorist and political organization Hezbollah, based in Lebanon.
Safadi’s defense attorney, Michael Tein, said in an interview that his client was innocent, mocking the indictment by calling it “the great Sony PlayStation caper.”
“Believe it or not, this indictment actually charges these gentleman with supporting Hezbollah by shipping them Sony PlayStations,” Tein said. “I guess that’s a new type of weapon of mass destruction.”
On Friday, federal prosecutors Russell Koonin and Allyson Fritz said the three defendants are flight risks and should be held without bail before trial. Magistrate Judge Peter Palermo scheduled bail hearings for March 1 and arraignments for March 5.
A fourth suspect, Samer Mehdi, who owns a business called Jomana Import Export that operated in the Galeria Page Mall in Ciudad del Este, also was charged. Mehdi, a 37-year-old Brazilian and Paraguayan national, has not been arrested.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents working with the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force in South Florida began the investigation into the alleged smuggling ring in 2007.
According to the indictment, Safadi was a distributor of the Sony-brand electronics to the freight-forwarders, Talavera and Gonzalez-Neira. They shipped the products to Mehdi.
To conceal the true destination of the shipments, the defendants fabricated invoices with false addresses and fictitious consignees on required export paperwork, according to the indictment.
Also, Mehdi’s wire-transfer payments in Paraguay to the U.S. distributors were routed through various facilities to mask their true origin, the indictment states.
John Morton, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for ICE, said the investigation was aimed at dismantling “criminal organizations that support designated terrorist entities and participate in the illicit trade of commodities that support terrorist activities” against the United States.
According to the Treasury Department, the Galeria Page Mall and offices there are considered the central headquarters for Hezbollah members in the tri-border region of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.
Muhammad Yusif Abdallah, a manager of Galeria Page, paid a regular quota to Hezbollah based on profits he received from the mall, a 2006 Treasury statement said.
The Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control also said the mall was part of a South American network that aided Assad Ahmad Barakat, who has been on the U.S. terrorist blacklist since 2004.
“Assad Ahmad Barakat’s network in [South America] is a major financial artery to Hezbollah in Lebanon,” Adam Szubin, director of OFAC, said in the release.
Miami Herald staff writer David Ovalle contributed to this report.
mydesert.com Security guard Doak Roberts can be seen patrolling the streets of Old Town La Quinta on most Friday and Saturday nights.
Roberts, working a Christmas Eve day shift last week because of the holidays, enjoys the responsibilities of his job.
“I patrol, I do lock-up at night,” he said. “I make sure everything is safe.”
Most of the time, Roberts stations himself right across from “where all the action is,” he said.
“This is the focal point,” said Roberts, parked on Main Street near the restaurant epicenter in Old Town.
Devane’s, Hog’s Breath Inn, Old Town Cellar and Stuft Pizza — that’s where the bulk of the activity takes place on Friday and Saturday nights.
“I’m visible” here, he said. “If people have a question they can ask me.”
Roberts, semi-retired and living in Indian Wells, has been on the job in Old Town for the past three months.
“I’m quite amazed at the general attitude of the people here,” he said. “It’s no hassle. People are so nice one night a couple came by and gave me hot chocolate. People are always doing nice things like that.”
Roberts said he frequents Old Town Coffee Company during his shifts.
“They make the best coffee,” he said. “I start out with a latte with one pump of vanilla, then I switch to just coffee with a little cream and sugar.”
Roberts said he enjoys working in this “very friendly little village.”
“Leslie (Locken, leasing and property manager for Old Town La Quinta) is a love,” he said. “I’m very happy working with her.”

A traffic infraction has landed four Tennessee basketball players, including starting senior forward Tyler Smith, in jail overnight.
A Knoxville Police Department spokesperson said the 23-year-old Smith, 22-year-old junior point guard Melvin Goins, 22-year-old junior center Brian Williams and 21-year-old sophomore guard Cameron Tatum were arrested during a Friday morning traffic stop near the Tennessee campus.
During the traffic stop, officers smelled marijuana coming from the car and found a handgun with an altered serial number, a bag of marijuana and an open container of alcohol. Police said that Tatum was driving.
Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl said in a statement that the team takes such matters seriously.
Atlanta police spokesman Officer James Polite Jr. said a man entered the McDonalds at 1176 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd. SW and attempted to force an employee to open the store safe. At this time, a security officer noticed what was happening and confronted the man and the two exchanged gunfire.
Both men were wounded. The suspect fled the scene but was later captured at 1433 Westridge Road SW, suffering from two gunshot wounds to the lower torso, Polite said.
Police say that the security officer was hit in the arm and neck, police said. He was listed in serious but stable condition Thursday at Grady Memorial Hospital, Polite said. His name has not been released.
The alleged robber was identified as Martez Howard, 31. He is at Grady in stable condition and will be transferred to the Fulton County Jail when he recovers, Polite said. He will be charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault.

According to a news release from the Tempe Police Department’s Web site, Jason Michael Cottis, 37, was arrested on suspicion of using a mirror to look up women’s skirts.
On Friday, security staff called police, saying they caught Cottis in the act via surveillance cameras, officers said. Security kept an eye on him until police arrived.
Security officers said they had caught the same man peeking under skirts in the store six times in the past two years; each time before, Cottis had fled before police arrived, according to the Police Department.
Cottis was booked into jail on one count of surreptitious viewing.
STALLINGS, N.C. (Charlotte metro) Dec 27 2009– A former Charlotte Checkers hockey player is facing charges in connection with a murder in Stallings.
It was the first murder in the small town in two years.
Bogdan Rudenko, 32, was arrested Christmas morning after a standoff with police in Colorado. He is being held in a Colorado jail without bond.
Rudenko is accused of shooting a man last weekend in Stallings. The man’s body was found behind a car repair shop off Independence Boulevard early Sunday morning.
Early Friday morning, Colorado police say they found the hockey player hiding out in a Howard Johnson motel in Colorado Springs.
“There was a standoff. It did last for a short time,” said Capt. L.C. Morgan with Colorado Springs Police Department.
Rudenko played for the Checkers during the 2004-2005 season and has played for a number of other teams, including a Colorado team.
“There was a reason for him to come to Colorado Springs for a short visit after the homicide occurred. Apparently, he wound up here for a short time and was headed elsewhere,” Morgan said.
Morgan said a woman tipped them off that Rudenko was hiding there.
Rudenko has been married twice — most recently to a woman in Charlotte. Stallings police say there’s still a lot they don’t know.
Stalling Police Chief Lark Plyler says, “Although motive has not been established in this case, it is somewhat of a relief that we have a big piece of that puzzle put together now, and at least have the perpetrator behind bars.”
Plyler is not releasing the victim’s name, saying he is not a U.S. citizen and they can’t be sure that they know his identity.
The chief did say there are probably more people involved in the killing, and the investigation is far from over.
Rudenko will likely be transferred to Stallings to face the murder charge after a court appearance early next week.

A 25-year-old man was shot in the chest, abdomen and legs.
Police described both victims as in serious but stable condition, and did not identify either man.

St. Louis Sheriff James W. Murphy could not be reached for comment. There was no answer at the sheriff’s office today.
There also was no answer at the Karma. The nightclub reopened in September. It had operated as the Lush until it closed earlier this year.
