Police: Man dies in fall from Cleveland apartment filled with drugs

Associated Press

CLEVELAND — Authorities in Cleveland aren’t sure if a man who died in an eight-story fall over the weekend had jumped from a balcony when a bail bondsman showed up serving a warrant.

Police say the body of the 24-year-old man was found Saturday in downtown Cleveland’s Flats entertainment district.

Authorities later found a large amount of suspected drugs and weapons in the apartment where the man fell.

Cleveland police said Tuesday that a bail bondsman was serving a warrant for a different man who was believed to be in the same apartment.

But police say the bondsman didn’t go inside the apartment because he believed there were several others there who might be armed and instead called police.

SWAT officers found no one else in the apartment.
