Bexley police said they responded to an alarm at 11:13 p.m. April 28 at a business in the 2200 block of East Livingston Avenue with video confirmation of a breaking and entering in progress at the store.

Before police arrived, the male suspect left the store and fled the area in a pickup truck. The only property reported stolen was instant lottery tickets, reports stated.

An employee of the same business reported that at 4:34 p.m. April 29, a male suspect entered and walked to a beer cooler at the rear of the store and took two cases of beer. The suspect walked toward the front door, stopped and smiled at the clerks before going out the front door without paying for the beer. The suspect walked to the west side of the parking lot and got into a gold Pontiac driven by a second male and left, going west on East Livingston Avenue.

On May 1 at 8 p.m. police were dispatched to the business for another theft that had just occurred. An employee reported a male suspect had stolen three boxes of cigarettes and left going northbound on College Avenue. Officers were unable to locate the suspect at the time.

In other recent reports from the Bexley police department, a resident in the 100 block of South Cassingham Road reported someone entered her unlocked vehicle between April 26 and April 27 while it was parked in the driveway at the rear of her house.

The offender rifled through the interior and stole her cellphone from inside the vehicle, reports stated. The resident later located her phone in a neighbor's yard.
