Noah Conley has been charged with felony counts of improperly discharging firearms and receiving stolen property in connection with bullet holes found in two Parkside Reserve Street homes.
Conley, 18, of Wellington, was charged by Wellington police on Jan. 4 with misdemeanor aggravated menacing after allegedly pointed a gun at a person on Parkside Reserve while riding in a car.
The shots were fired at approximately 5 a.m. the morning after that incident took place, police said.
After Conley was arrested, a search warrant issued by Oberlin Municipal Court judge Thomas Januzzi led to the discovery of a .38-caliber handgun at his home. Ensuing forensic analysis of that weapon allowed police to hand down the two felony charges.
He was served with the felonies at a hearing Jan. 19 in Oberlin and awaits a trial date in the Lorain County Court of Common Pleas.
A $750,000 bond has been set on the conditions that Conley goes on house arrest, does not consume alcohol or illegal drugs, and is connected to a GPS device prior to release from jail, according to court documents.
“He was in a vehicle and had pointed a firearm at an individual,” said Wellington prosecutor Joe LaVeck. “Our number one priority was getting him off the street.”
