NORWOOD, OH (FOX19) - Police said they are investigating after several people reported similar crimes in a Norwood neighborhood.
At least 15 cars were broken into in the past few weeks, according to police reports.
Victims said they found their car windows shattered and their belongings rummaged through.
The suspect or suspects got away with a firearm, BEAT headphones, credit cards and other items, the reports show.
Lt. Ron Murphy said this is a crime of opportunity.
“We used to say don’t leave valuables in your car. Now, we say don’t leave anything in your car,” he said.
Police took a juvenile into custody but investigators could not say if the juvenile is the suspect in all of the break-ins.
