Mentor Police Search for Man Accused of Theft & Passing Bad Checks

The man was previously wanted in February for the same offenses

Mentor Police are looking for a man who failed to appear in court on theft charges.

According to the department's Facebook page, Mitchell Gladding is wanted for theft and using bad checks in Mentor. Gladding was previously listed as a fugitive on the page in February for the same offenses.

He entered a not guilty plea in March, and his pre-trial date had been scheduled for April 1. His pre-trial for the petty theft case is now set for 8:45 a.m. April 30.

Mentor Police Lt. Tim Allen said Gladding's charges stem from three bad checks that he passed in Mentor totaling $1,098. Allen added that Gladding corresponded with the department via Facebook after the first listing, prompting police to remove his image. However, he has not shown up to court since his plea.

The 36-year-old man's last known address is in Madison.

Police ask anybody with information on his whereabouts to call 440-255-1234. The department pledges to grant anonymity.
