Columbus police are notifying homeowners to be aware of potential thefts.

Police are alerting Columbus residents to a spike in home burglaries.

The Columbus Police Department has been getting as many as four reports a week for the last month and a half. Garages and sheds are the targets for thieves.

In one instance, a man walked into his garage to find someone else inside. The intruder had a suitcase full of the homeowner‘s stuff, and he was about to drive off with his motorcycle.

Police say documenting belongings, taking pictures of valuables and writing down the serial numbers, can be a big help in stolen property cases.
