On March 1, 2017, at approximately 7:45 p.m., the Summit County Sheriff’s Office responded to a burglary in progress on Kingsley Avenue in Coventry Township.

The reporting party notified the Sheriff’s Office of a male suspect forcing entry into his neighbor’s house.  The suspect had removed an air conditioning unit and broke a window as he attempted to gain entry into the residence. The reporting party confronted the suspect at the window and the suspect fled on foot. The reporting party gave chase until the suspect turned and fired two rounds from a handgun. The suspect continued to flee in an unknown vehicle.

The homeowner, identified as Charles Kalail, arrived at his residence as deputies were securing the area. The residence was checked for evidence of the burglary and the possibility of a second suspect inside the house.   

No suspects were located inside the house. However, deputies located multiple packages of Marijuana in plain view. The marijuana was packaged and ready for sale and shipment.  A search warrant was obtained and the residence was searched for additional evidence. The search warrant was executed and additional packages of Marijuana, Xanax, drug paraphernalia, cash and three firearms were recovered.

Kalail, 29 of Coventry Township, was arrested and charged with Trafficking in Drugs-Marijuana (F-5). He was booked into the Summit County Jail. Additional charges pending the outcome of the investigation.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the burglar(s) should contact the Summit County Sheriff’s Office at 330-643-2181.
