COLUMBUS -- ABC 6/FOX 28 has uncovered a crime hot spot in West Columbus, where thieves have been busting into locked garages.
Karen Colley, lost religious jewelry, and Easter presents for her grandkids after thieves broke into her garage over the weekend.
“I am afraid, they took away my security,” said Karen. She is not alone; four other garages in her neighborhood have been targeted by burglars.
In at least two cases, crooks broke the locks on detached garages to get inside to steal auto parts, cash and yard equipment.
“It’s sad, I don’t understand them,” said Karen.
Anyone with information is asked to call Columbus Police at 614-645-4545.
