NORTHFIELD, Ohio-- Suspects are accused of using urine to vandalize the former Northfield Center/Sagamore Hills Fire District Substation on West Aurora Road in Northfield.

On Monday, the Summit County Sheriff's Office responded to the building for a burglary.

They determined that someone broke into the building over the weekend and caused several thousand dollars in damage to the building and to equipment that was being stored inside.

The sheriff's office said the suspects wrote profanity on equipment and other items; they also saturated beds, carpeting, and 14 pieces of turn-out gear with urine.


Crime scene investigators were at the building Tuesday to analyze the scene and the urine to learn more about the suspects.

Anyone with information on the crime should contact the Summit County Sheriff’s Office Detective Bureau at 330-643-2131.
