Subject: UFO/9-1-1 Police Incident/pursuit: 12-14-94

This is a brief summation on the 9-1-1 dispatch tapes from the
December 14, 1994 Trumbull County Disturbance. A more exacting
transcript is being prepared. More information is available at
the web-site listed below.

Notes: UFO/9-1-1 Police Incident, 12-14-94

An object was first visually observed at a treetop level before
midnight in the vicinity of Samson Drive and the Fifth Avenue
Extension. It was bluish-green with flames. Four calls were
placed to the dispatch office before midnight, and these calls
are not on the present tape. An additional call was placed to
WYTV Channel-33 news reporter 'Stacey.'

A unit (#998) is dispatched to Samson Drive to investigate.

At the point Unit #998 [Tobe Melero] views the object at close
range, it is now red, and illuminating the ground with a
tremendous red light "as bright as daylight." From all accounts,
the object was described as 'huge.' [Melero later stated that he
encountered an elderly man who was wandering in the roadway,
saying: "it was right above my house!" He also stated that when
he drew near to the object, he felt that it effected the
electronic instrumentation of his patrol cruiser]

Having reported his observation, other units are now dispatched
for backup and a call is placed to the airbase by the dispatcher.
There is no answer at the airbase, and a call is then placed to
the FAA tower, where the tower operator states to have nothing on
his radarscope within a 60-mile radius of Youngstown.

At this point, the unidentified aircraft departs from the Samson
Road area (is is not known the nature of departure whether it be
with path N, S, E or W, ascention, fade from view, etc).
Interestingly, Unit #998 advises that he was 'out of service' for
a duration to "gather his thoughts." The time is near 1:00 a.m.

The UFO is again reported when Unit #429 advises central dispatch
that an object is spotted to the east of the 9-1-1 center. The
dispatcher, eager to view the object, steps away to look for the
UFO as another person takes her place.

The object is said to be near Route 11, and several units from
different locations and directions triangulate its position from
areas near Kings Grave and Henheid. The object is now over an
empty field, and changes color from whitish red to a pulsating
greenish lavender.

The dispatcher returns, saying that she did not see the UFO. More
incoming radio traffic relevant to the UFO causes her to 'take a
break' where she plans to meet an officer who will pick her up
and take her to see it [During my 1996 interview with Royanne
Rudolph, she said that finally did see the lighted object, and it
resembled a 'red, rotating saucer'].

Through heavy radio traffic, several unspecified police units
converge upon the UFO and triangulate its position.

This documented triangulation of an aerial object from different
vantage points indicates to us that it is not a star, as the
object maintains a localized presence within a specific area (A
star cannot be triangulated from units approaching in different
directions). One unit claims that he is heading east to approach
the object, another unit advises that he is heading north to
approach the object.  A unit headed eastbound advised that the
object was 'southeast' of his location.

The object remains stationary for a duration over this empty
field prior to a departure path to the southeast, where it is
seen near an 84-Lumber hardware store. There it is described as a
structured object with an attachment or unspecified element
protruding from the top of it.

Every police department in the county now has the object under
observation, and many units are now pursuing the UFO from
different departments and localities.

Several units are maintaining the object under binocular
observation, and discern a 'parachute-like' structure attached to
the object. One unit tries to signal the object.

One officer, who is at the airbase, is also observing the object
from his vantage point. Present with him to view the UFO is a
security guard at the airbase.

At this point, "several" objects are suddenly under scrutiny by
law enforcement officials. This is announced rather cryptically,
as the officer states: "We have both of them under visual
observation, I think you'll know what I mean." It is not known if
the main object 'split' into several objects (a frequent element
reported in UFO sightings) or if additional objects were
generated elsewhere or 'arrived' on the scene.

One specific object, described as a 'white light,' appeared over
the airbase, where a police officer was present to report it.

Pursuit of these objects continued for some time, and it was
again stressed that all departments in the county were concerned
with the situation, and held the object(s) under visual

All objects ascended to a high elevation and appeared as stars in
the sky. As the objects were viewed at a high elevation, others
on the police force that did not place a close range observation
of the main object, while at its low elevation, assumed that
everyone else had mis-identified planets and shooting stars.

Some on the police force mused that stealth technology was
employed to negate radar detection, some speculated that they
weren't being told of a secret project from the airbase.

Toward the end of the event, jets were seen in the area, and one
officer believed they were military jets from the airbase
scrambled to engage the objects.

One officer refuted the 'planet' comment, but stated that there
were shooting stars visible. He stated that there were six
shooting stars in the same part of the sky that the UFO was seen

One unit took exception to the remark that planets were mistaken
as UFOs, and he added: "What I saw was not a planet, it was
50-feet off the ground and lit up the whole area like daylight."

It is thought that the event ended around 6:00 a.m. from previous
discussions with officials involved, although a specific time is
not reflected on the tape.

A UFO sighting was reported on the previous evening, and also two
weeks earlier.
