WORTHINGTON, Ohio (WCMH) – Jewelry has been the target in nearly a dozen daytime burglaries in Worthington since the end of September.
According to Worthington police, in many of the burglaries, pieces of jewelry are the only things stolen.
Investigators say the suspects will most often break in through a rear window or door after walking around the houses and checking for open or unlocked windows or doors. In several cases, the suspects broke glass around the back door and reached through to unlock it.
Police are unsure whether the suspects are familiar the value of the stolen jewelry, as both real and costume pieces have been stolen.
