Microchipping is just $25 and takes less than 5 minutes. Most local vets also offer microchipping

We want to ensure that any animal that may become lost will once again be reunited with its loving family. Lake Humane Society not only provides every dog and cat with a microchip before they go up for adoption, but we also offer microchipping to the community. It takes less than 5 minutes to receive a microchip and is given the same way a vaccine is.

To have your animal microchipped, simply contact our shelter to schedule an appointment by sending an email to [email protected]. The cost for microchipping is just $25!

As the new year is knocking at our door, many of us are anxious to bid farewell to a challenging year. All of us at the Painesville Police Department are leaving 2020 with great losses, whether it is in our own personal lives or together as a department. Most of you have experienced the loss of a loved one. Some were blessed to welcome new additions to their family. Some have gained new friendships that will last a lifetime. No matter what 2020 has brought to your doorstep, I hope we all have learned something about ourselves.

If 2020 was anything, it was the ultimate teaching guide. It has taught us to find happiness in simple things. It has taught us that difficult times reveal how strong you really are. It has taught us to slow down and to enjoy our family. It has taught us to never take things for granted, whether they are vacations, work, family gatherings and especially health.

As the new year rolls in, let us remember the good times along with the bad. Have a safe and wonderful New Year and may all your joys and blessings multiply in 2021.

News Release: MISSING JUVENILE FOUND DECEASED

PAINESVILLE, Ohio— It is with great sadness that the Painesville Police Department reports the death of 15-year-old missing juvenile, Kathryn McGuire, of Painesville City. Painesville Police were notified that McGuire had been brought to Dignity Health Saint Rose Hospital in Henderson, Nevada on December 8. She was pronounced dead at the hospital. This information and her identity were later confirmed by the Henderson Police Department.

McGuire was one of two missing juveniles believed to have runaway together on Thursday, November 26 from their homes in Painesville City. 15-year-old female Haylie Vance, the other missing juvenile, was found safe by Long Beach California Police on December 4. 19-year-old male Aaron Larkin, who was also reported missing, had been with McGuire in Henderson, Nevada and has been detained pending an investigation by the Henderson Police Department.

KNOWN TIMELINE
• On Thursday, November 26 at about 7:30 a.m., Larkin left an apartment he shared with an adult sister in Willoughby, Ohio. His permanent residence was on Poplar Lane in Painesville.

• Thursday, November 26 at about 3:30 p.m., Vance left her residence on Sanders Avenue to visit a friend who resided a couple of streets over.

• Over the next week, Painesville Police, multiple local law enforcements and the U.S. Marshals Service all follow many different leads, tirelessly trying to locate the whereabouts of the three missing persons.

• On Friday, December 4 at 11:56 a.m., Painesville Police are notified that Vance was located and detained by Long Beach California Police. Vance confirms that she and McGuire had voluntarily left the state of Ohio with their friend Larkin and all three of them had been in California for at least six days.

• On Tuesday, December 8 at 12:32 p.m., Painesville Police received information that a female believed to be McGuire had been brought to Dignity Health Saint Rose Hospital in Henderson, Nevada. She was pronounced dead at the hospital. This information was later confirmed by the Henderson Police Department.

This continues to be an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Painesville Police Department at 440-392-5840.

It is with great sadness that we report the loss of our beloved Sergeant Russell F. Tuttle Jr. Sgt. Tuttle passed away early this morning after a brief illness.

Sergeant Tuttle has been with the Painesville Police Department for over 21 years, starting in 1999. Tuttle was initially hired as a Community Service Officer, spending a few years in that position before being promoted to full-time patrol officer. Tuttle became an evidence technician very early on in his career and subsequently became an evidence room custodian, and a field training officer, before being promoted to shift Sergeant. As a Sergeant, Tuttle remained an evidence room custodian and was well known throughout the department as someone who went out of his way to help and teach others.

There are really no words to describe this type of loss. When you lose a great person and friend like Russ, there becomes a great void in our lives. This is one void that will last a lifetime.

Perhaps most importantly, Russ was a proud husband to Donielle and father to Ethan, Austin, and Caden.

We ask that those who knew Russ and his family to keep them in your thoughts.

Thank you to the Mentor Police Department. Painesville Police are still looking for any potential video surveillance or eye witnesses of the original robbery on Greenfield Lane. If you have any information, please contact us at 440-354-3535.

On October 28th, at 9:53 pm the Mentor Police Department attempted to stop a vehicle that had just been stolen during a carjacking in Painesville. As officers initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle on Essex Circle, the suspects bailed out of the moving car and took off on foot. One juvenile male was caught and arrested for Receiving Stolen Property, Possession of Marijuana, Obstructing Official Business, and weapons charges. Two handguns were recovered during the incident. The second suspect was not apprehended.
Although this vehicle was taken during a carjacking, this a reminder to everyone to lock their cars and to not leave keys in the car. Mentor, along with suburbs surrounding Cleveland, have been having numerous cars stolen. The cars are being left unlocked with the key fobs left in the car.

Have all of the missing teens been found? I don't see the posts up any longer.....
I have a question. If I saw a package by my apartment door and opened it without checking the name then realizing the package isn't mine and putting the package by the door of the rightful owner and finding my package by her door could I be charged with tampering with the mail? Basically what happened is the packages got switched by the Janitor Roger or it might have been a mistake by the FedEx or UPS driver. I only ask because I know the girl, and she told me the janitor and the Painesville police were trying to convince her to file a complaint, so I would be charged with federal tampering. I'm just curious if she was lying about the complicity between the police and the janitor. Thank You have a nice day.
Is there a way to request having an officer sit near a road to catch the multiple people speeding daily on a street. Cars driving at least 50MPH+ in a 25 zone?
Any official word on all the vehicle thefts that occurred last night? Curious as to why you haven’t posted anything on it, if for anything, to make people aware.
Can we get an update on the shooting that started on Morse Ave?
There is a post going around that the PPD picked up a kitty acting in distress around TOWNMILL CT/TRAILWOOD area in Painesville possibly yesterday. Can info be posted about this kitty; what happened and where kitty is, because somebody may be missing their kitty and have no idea what happened to it. Thank you.
