Sudden Retirement Of Cleveland Police Chief Came After Discovery Of Affair

Sunday, December 08, 2013

The sudden retirement of Cleveland Police Chief Wes Snyder Friday came after the recent discovery of a video showing him meeting with the director of Main Street Cleveland at a storage unit.

A police report said items found in the unit at Rhodes Climate Controlled Storage on Old Tasso Road included baby wipes, paper towels, a mirror, a hair brush and a bottle of brandy. It also included an area rug, a couple of blankets and pillows.

The unit was rented by Sharon Marr, director of Main Street Cleveland, using her own funds.

Police began checking out the unit "for some possible illegal activity" after the owner showed an officer "pictures, videos and gave witness accounts of some unusual activity going on in one of the units."

He said a couple of weeks earlier there had been "a horrible smell" coming from one of the units. He then got a step ladder and began trying to determine where the smell was coming from.

The owner said he was worried that one of the renters might have left some trash or other items causing the smell.

He said when he got to the Marr unit he noticed the rug, blankets, pillows and other items.

Police then were told that Ms. Marr rented that unit.

A video showed Ms. Marr entering the building "with a white male dressed in a suit with a brown sports coat. About an hour and a half later the male is seen exiting the building and getting into Sharon's vehicle and about three minutes later Sharon exiting the building and gets into her vehicle and the two leave the property together."

Afterward, the owner and officers entered the unit "and found it just as the owner had described it."
