Cleveland Police Chief Wes Snyder's sudden retirement may be linked to the discovery of a love nest in a warehouse unit rented to MainStreet Cleveland.
The Cleveland Police Department this afternoon released an incident report dated Dec. 4 in which officers recovered a video showing MainStreet Cleveland Executive Director Sharon Marr entering and spending about 90 minutes in a rental unit with a “white man in a brown suit” who arrived with her in her car.
Cleveland police spokeswoman Evie West this afternoon confirmed the man was identified as Snyder.
Marr could not be reached for comment this afternoon.
Officers admitted to the unit by the warehouse owner found a rug, blankets and pillows and a bottle of brandy, according to the police report.
Snyder submitted his retirement letter Friday.
