More Smash and Grab Car Thefts in North Columbus

Thursday, January 17th, 2008

Columbus Police confirm thieves broke into five cars Thursday night at the Hollywood Connection on Whittlesey Boulevard.

Officers on the scene say items such as purses belonging to the victims were found emptied around the parking lot.

News Leader Nine has also received reports of five other car break-ins at Columbus State University.

Authorities can't say if these crimes are related to a number of so-called "smash and grab" car thefts over the past few weeks.
