The most bizarre police reports from departments throughout Northeast Ohio.
Northeast Ohio police departments have been busy with plenty of outlandish offenses. Here are the weirdest reports of the week.

Target employee starts petition effort on Change.org
More than 187,000 have signed a petition started by a Nebraska Target employee on Change.org to "save Thanksgiving" by having Black Friday sales start at 5 a.m. rather than at midnight. Anthony Hardwick said a midnight opening robs employees of time off with their families on Thanksgiving. That started 26 other campaigns on Change.org to get Kohl's, Best Buy, Macy's and other stores to change their midnight openings, said Benjamin Joffe-Walt, director of communications for Change.org.

Purchasing precious photos of your loved ones is easy and affordable with these offers
When a special family photo is on display, it is a captured memory to recall and enjoy for many years.
