Clintonville: Nothing stolen, but bank damaged during burglary

Chase Bank, 186 Graceland Blvd., was found to have been burglarized at 12:40 a.m. June 9, Columbus police reports said.

According to reports, an officer found the back door of the business had been forced open by someone who gained entry to the bank and caused damage to the building as well as tampered with communications panels.

No property was found to be missing from the premises, reports said, and the scene was not processed for evidence due to the bank's request to have necessary repairs made.

Damage to the site was estimated at $2,300.
