PARMA HEIGHTS -- The owner of Cleats, Harry Santillo, and his nephew helped to bring an end to a string of cell phone thefts, after apprehending the suspect inside their bar.

The thief had already stolen 2 phones from Cleats and came back a third time when they caught him.

After investigating, police found he was working with at least 2 other people and they've nabbed 6 phones from bars in Parma, Parma Heights, and Middleburg Heights.

Santillo said, "Growing up on the west side I was always taught to get involved. If you can help someone out, or deter something, why not?"

Cleats proudly changed its slogan at the location to "safest bar in town."
