Reynoldsburg: Prowler suspected of stealing cash, credit cards

Police are investigating reports of a prowler who is suspected of stealing a wallet, credit cards and cash.

Officers were dispatched at 2:04 a.m. June 5 to a home in the 8300 block of Glencrest Road on a complaint about a prowler. The homeowner told police he saw a white man looking in his window, then saw the man walk east on Glencrest Drive. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, gray pants and white shoes.

The officers were unable to locate the suspect, but discovered the garage door at the residence was open and the interior and vehicles inside "had been rummaged through," according to the report.

The reporting officer said he found the owner's lawnmower in front of another residence near the curb and several cordless power tools in the grass on the east side of the garage. A wallet containing $60 cash and credit cards was missing from one of the vehicles.
