CRIME HOT SPOTS: Thief Goes on 90 Minute Crime Spree
COLUMBUS (Steve Levine/Ken Hines) -- Police are looking for a serial thief suspected of breaking into three Downtown businesses in a single day.
Java Jans Coffee at 175 S. 3rd St., Edible Arrangements at 14 N. High St., and Si Senor at 75 East Lynn St. were all burglarized within 90 minutes on September 22, making the area an ABC 6 Fighting Back Crime Hot Spot.
Its very frustrating, Edible Arrangements owner Chris Bukovac said. All of us are small business owners. We are all struggling trying to make it Downtown.
Security Cameras at each location caught the same masked burglar in action, breaking in through the businesses' front door, then looking for cash in the registers.
While the thief walked away empty-handed from Edible Arrangements, about 70 bucks in change was stolen from the other two businesses.
Anyone with information about the burglaries is asked to call Columbus Police at 614-645-4545.
