COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – Three arrests were made in connection to the theft of multiple vehicles from a rental company Tuesday night on the east side of Columbus.
According to Columbus police, three individuals each stole a rental car at gunpoint from the rental car center in the 4100 block of International Gateway at the John Glenn International Airport Tuesday night at 8:30 p.m.
Officers were reportedly able to locate one of the stolen vehicles approximately six miles west of the airport in South Linden near Louis Avenue and East 15th Avenue. Columbus Regional Airport Authority Police are leading the investigation into the thefts.
Police later confirmed that an arrest made at Interstate-71 and Cooke Rd. was unrelated to the incident at the Airport.
