COLUMBUS (WCMH) – Columbus Police are asking for tips that could lead to the arrest of the person responsible for two elaborate break-ins and burglaries at a south Columbus business.
On Sept. 24, an unknown suspect disabled an alarm system and broke into a business on the 800 block of Harmon Avenue in South Franklinton. The suspect took elaborate measures to conceal their activity, cutting a hole in the fence of a neighboring business and disabling the floodlights.
Shortly after the break-in, an unknown male walked into a nearby business and attempted to sell a television that had been stolen during the burglary.
Two days later, the same business was broken into for a second time using similar methods.
