Early this morning, for the second time in a little over a week, numerous unlocked vehicles were rummaged through in the City of Columbus. Cash, credit cards, wallets and other items were stolen. Along with that this morning, residents of a home woke up to noise in their house and found intruders, who fled and sped away in a smaller white SUV. Drawers had been pulled out and rummaged through. Entry to the home is believed to have been gained by entering an unlocked car and using the garage door open.
The Columbus Police Department is seeking help from the public. Any residents who live in the Vista Circle, Ridgeview Lane and Avalon Road area that have home video systems that capture vehicles on the roadway and were recording last night/this morning, are asked to contact our department.
This also serves as a reminder to residents to lock your cars, remove any potential valuables and report any suspicious activity in your neighborhoods.
