Columbus police warn of car burglaries

Columbus police are warning about an increase in vehicle break-ins and suggest you take extra precautions to keep your valuables safe.

Lt. Matt Harris, spokesman with the Columbus Police Department, explains:

05-25 Matt Harris-2

That comes after a break-in last week where a thief stole a boy’s hearing implants from a locked car.

Harris said that the hearing implant thefts happened last week near Pence Place apartments where a thief broke out the window of a vehicle to steal the belongings. If you have any information on that case or other thefts should contact the Columbus Police Department at 376-2600.
