Westerville police arrest two in string of burglaries
Westerville police arrested two people Sept. 6 who they believe are tied to a rash of burglaries.
Joseph A. Ennemoser Jr. and Kelly A. Cline were followed by Westerville police from the Annehurst neighborhood to Grove City, where they allegedly broke into a home and stole items before being taken into custody by Westerville and Grove City police.
According to Westerville police, the couple’s vehicle fit the description of the dark blue or black truck that had been seen in the area of several recent burglaries.
Since early August, there have been 14 burglaries in Westerville, many of which fit a similar pattern: Doors were smashed in with a sledgehammer while the home’s occupants were out, and thieves made away with flat-screen televisions, computers, jewelry and sometimes guns.
At this point, Ennemoser and Cline are being held only on charges related to the Grove City burglary, and it’s unknown how many of the Westerville burglaries they could be tied to, Westerville police said.
Ennemoser is from Marengo, while Cline is from Columbus, police said. They were staying at the Westerville Value Inn, 32 Heatherdown Drive, where some of the items reported stolen were found.
Both Ennemoser and Cline are being held in the Franklin County jail.
