Reynoldsburg police are investigating a series of car break-ins that occurred mainly in an area off Waggoner Road in the Coronado Woods condominium complex.

According to police reports, 13 cars were broken into; Lt. Jim O'Neill said most of the incidents took place early on the morning of Sunday, Jan. 23.

"They were all in fairly concentrated areas," O'Neill said. "At this point, it appears there was definitely a pattern and we're treating them like they're all related."

During most of the break-ins, windows were smashed out and items were stolen from the vehicles.

In a couple of incidents, no items were taken, O'Neill said, but in most cases, a variety of things were stolen, including cameras, GPS systems, car stereos and, in one case, an infant's shoes.

O'Neill said residents need to be aware and need to make sure they remember not to leave expensive items in their cars overnight.
