Rocky River Police find 4 stolen cars from Cleveland suburbs - Cleveland 19 News

ROCKY RIVER, Ohio (WOIO) - Lock your cars! It’s a message police have told their communities time and time again, but since there are still people whose cars are being stolen in “crimes of opportunity,” it needs to be repeated.

As Rocky River Police found a car stolen from their city, three more stolen cars from Cleveland suburbs were found and taken away on Wednesday.

Rocky River Police said officers were sent to a report of a stolen car on July 21 where the car was taken with the keys.

Officers on scene learned that another car three houses down had been entered while unlocked, but nothing was taken from it despite valuable items being in plain sight, police said.

Police said officers and detectives quickly gathered pertinent information and found the car in Cleveland just hours later.

While recovering that stolen car, the other three were located and removed, according to police.

Rocky River Police shared the two takeaways from these incidents:

- The items inside of the unlocked vehicle entered were not taken, it appears the criminals were specifically intending to steal vehicles.

- There was no forced entry on either vehicle, and it appears these were crimes of opportunity.

We politely ask you to do us two favors; lock your homes and vehicles, and if you see something say something. You know the neighborhood you live in, you know the normal people and vehicles. If you see something out of place call us, we will come and check it out! Don’t worry about bugging us, we want to be bugged! That’s why you pay high taxes.

NFL coach dies after being hit by car while biking - KTLA

New York Jets assistant coach Greg Knapp died Thursday of injuries suffered in an accident when he was struck by a car while riding a bicycle Saturday near his home in California. He was 58.

Knapp’s family released a statement through the team that the longtime NFL assistant coach died.

“Greg Knapp (aka Knapper) was called back home to Heaven, where he will be reunited with his Dad,” the statement said.

The family said in the statement that Knapp never regained consciousness after being hit by the car in the city of San Ramon in the San Francisco Bay Area.

He was surrounded by wife Charlotte, daughters Jordan, Natalie and Camille, his mother and brother when he died.

“Greg’s infectious personality is most people’s first and lasting memory of him,” the family said. “The phrase, ‘He never met a stranger’ encapsulates Knapper’s zest for life. He had a unique gift to make everyone feel special, and to Knapper, they all were.

“While his family, friends and players still had so much to learn from him and desperately wished they had more time with him, God called an audible and wanted to go over the game plan directly with him. It will certainly be a masterpiece, just like Greg!”

Knapp, who lived in Danville, California, was hired by the Jets in January as part of new coach Robert Saleh’s staff, serving as the passing-game specialist.

“The loss of a loved one is always a challenge, but is harder when it is completely unexpected,” Saleh said in a statement issued by the team. “Charlotte, Jordan, Natalie and Camille, please accept our most sincere condolences. Greg had such an inner peace about him that people always seemed to gravitate towards. He lived life in a loving way that helped him connect with people from all walks of life in a unique way. In his short time here, I believe the people in this organization had a chance to experience that connection.

“Greg, thank you for all that you have shared with us. You will be missed, brother.”

Among Knapp’s primary roles with the Jets was to help develop quarterback Zach Wilson, the No. 2 overall draft pick.

“Man this is hard,” Wilson wrote on Instagram. “Huge impact on my life in only a few months. Love you coach Knapper.”

Knapp was well-liked and respected in NFL circles and he established himself as a quarterback guru and one of the league’s top offensive-minded coaches. Among the other quarterbacks he coached during his career were Steve Young, Jeff Garcia, Rick Mirer, Matt Schaub, Michael Vick, Peyton Manning and Matt Ryan.

Several of Knapp’s former teams and players posted tributes and sent condolences to the coach’s family on social media.

“From all-time greats like Peyton Manning to young players just starting their careers, Greg was a trusted confidant and the very definition of a ‘quarterback whisperer,’” the Denver Broncos said in a statement. “More importantly, the connections and friendships he forged with players, coaches and staff — as well as their families — were genuine and special.”

After a nine-year stint as an assistant at Sacramento State, where he also played quarterback, Knapp got his first NFL job with San Francisco in 1997 as an offensive quality control coach under Steve Mariucci. He was promoted to quarterbacks coach two years later and became the 49ers’ offensive coordinator in 2001.

Knapp joined Jim Mora’s staff in Atlanta as the offensive coordinator in 2004, and served in the same capacity for Oakland (2007-08 and 2012) and Seattle (2009). He also had stints as the quarterbacks coach for Houston (2010-11), Denver (2013-16) — where he helped Manning set single-season passing records in 2013 — and most recently in a second stint with the Falcons (2018-20).

“He was a tremendous football coach who achieved at the highest levels of our game, but more importantly he was a wonderful person who had the love, admiration and respect of those who were blessed to work with him,” Falcons owner and chairman Arthur Blank said in a statement. “He was always a positive presence with the Falcons and carried that optimistic spirit with him each day while working with our coaches, players and staff on and off the field. He will be deeply missed.”

Knapp had been expected to have a key role in helping offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur and quarterbacks coach Rob Calabrese teach and develop Wilson as the 21-year-old QB adjusts to NFL life as the likely starter for the Jets this season.

“His legacy is not only working with some of the brightest quarterbacks the league has ever seen, but the countless others across this world he has had an indelibly positive influence on,” Jets chairman Woody Johnson said in a statement.

Knapp’s family set up a page on CaringBridge to allow loved ones and friends to post photos, memories or notes. Funeral arrangements were still pending.
