Grandview Heights police responded last week to several incidents of vehicle break-ins or attempts to enter cars.
An officer took three reports of break-ins Dec. 13.
All three incidents occurred between 6 and 7 p.m. while the vehicles were parked in a lot in the 900 block of West Third Avenue.
A laptop computer and tablet computer were stolen from one vehicle; a laptop computer and cash were taken from another car, reports said. No items were reported missing from the third car.
A passenger-side window was broken on each car to gain entry.
A man visited the police department Dec. 12 to report a theft from his car took place overnight Dec. 10 or 11 while it was parked in the 800 block of Copeland Road.
The man said a speaker, a phone charger, a lighter, a coin he won for bowling a perfect game, and miscellaneous change were stolen from his vehicle.
He told police he believes his car was locked, but there was no apparent damage to the car.
Officers were dispatched at 3:35 a.m. Dec. 11 to the 1300 block of Elmwood Avenue on a report of a person walking onto multiple driveways and checking the doors of vehicles.
The caller reported the suspicious person exited a car parked on the street; inside the car, a person was seen talking on a cellphone, reports said.
Officers arrived on the scene and blocked the vehicle. They made contact with the occupants of the car, who denied entering any vehicles in the area, reports said.
While the officers were speaking with the suspects, a resident approached them and reported money had been taken from his car, adding he had surveillance video of a suspect, reports said. Police reviewed the video, but neither of the suspects they were questioning matched the suspect in the video, according to reports.
The car's occupants were not found to be in possession of stolen property and were released at the scene, reports said.
