Beware of bed bugs on secondhand items

MIDDLEBURG HEIGHTS -- They're creepy. They're crawly, and they're everywhere!

Bed bugs are such a big problem that Cuyahoga County created a task force to fight the tiny critters.

The task force is warning shoppers to take a close look at any secondhand items they've purchased at consignment shops.

If you've never seen one before,a full-grown bed bug gets no bigger than an apple seed.

Wanda Stewart is a bargain hunter. When she rummages through the racks, she's looking for a good deal without stains, rips or bed bugs.

"I also look up under the collar and look all through the furs, you know, because we don't want nothing lurking or hiding through the furs," said Stewart.

These disgusting creatures look a lot like a tick but act like a vampire. When they come out at night, they feed on human blood, leaving behind red bite marks.

"Bed bugs can happen to anyone. If you're living a breathing, that's a criteria that the bed bug needs to hone in on you," said Dr. Susan Jones, from Ohio State University.

The Cleveland Furniture Bank has yet to see a single bed bug on any of its donations, but the secondhand store isn't taking chances.

"We unload it here and inspect the mattresses again at the lower level to make sure there's nothing wrong with them," said Executive Director Tom Gaghan.

All mattresses and furniture are inspected, sprayed with a sanitizing solution, and marked with a red tag -- as required by Ohio law.

Clothing and Halloween costumes are inspected three times before they're put on the sales floor.

For customers like Wanda, that's a relief.

"It brings me a lot of comfort, a lot of comfort, and I will be back," said Stewart.

Keep in mind that not all secondhand stores inspect clothing for bed bugs. They are not required by law to do so.

If you bought an item and are concerned about it, put it in the dryer on medium to high heat for a half hour.

Jones says bed bugs don't have a mechanism to withstand high temperatures.

CLEVELAND -- Police are looking for help finding the individuals involved in a burglaryMonday at Great Lakes Brewery.

Once inside, the group caused thousands of dollars in damage to the bar and brewery at 2516 Market Ave. and stole 500 feet of copper electrical cable.

After the theft, the suspects fled the scene in an undetermined direction.

The suspects are described as three individuals wearing hooded sweatshirts and dark-colored pants.

After further investigation, the suspects were seen on security video Sunday conducting surveillance on the brewery.

Anyone with information as to the identification or whereabouts of the suspects is asked to contact the Second District Detective Bureau at (216) 623-5218.

Anonymous information can be given to Crime Stoppers by calling (216) 252.7463 or rext messaging: TIP657 plus your message to CRIMES (274637).

His version of the song "The Other Side" by Jason Derulo was not enough to stay alive.

WKYC Staff, WKYC 9:45 p.m. EDT October 29, 2013

Twinsburg native Anthony Paul was knocked out of NBC's hit show "The Voice" Tuesday night.

His version of the song "The Other Side" by Jason Derulo was not enough to stay alive.

He had been eliminated two weeks ago before Aguilera "stole" him - keeping him the contest for a while longer.

On Twitter Tuesday night Paul said: "I cannot explain how grateful I am and I cannot do anything without the support of my amazing family, friends community and fans....."

On another tweet he says "first of all, in my opinion that was my worst performance ever, and the fact that I still have so much support is incredible."

His friends who sang with him at Twinsburg High School continue to sing his praises.

"We all know how talented he is, how hard of a worker he is, and we know he'll never give up on what he wants to do," says Twinsburg Junior Nicole Ostrowski. "It will not be the end of Anthony Paul."

"I think he'll pursue his music career, and he should," says sophomore Alec Albright. "Because it's his passion, he's so talented, and it'd be such a waste if he stopped it right there."

Indeed he remains on that track, Anthony Paul is back at college, studying music in suburban Chicago.
