Two burglaries were reported on the north side of Westerville on March 2.
A man reported more than $17,000 in missing items after his apartment was burglarized while he was at work.
According to reports, the man returned to the building in the 800 block of Chillingham Drive to find that his front door had been pried open. When officers arrived, they noticed pry marks and damage to the door frame, reports stated.
The man reported several items missing, including a watch, a wedding ring, electronics, credit cards and his car keys.
Officers are investigating, but were unable to find fingerprints on any of the items the suspect may have touched.
A woman in the 600 block of Albion Place reported a similar incident the same day.
The woman reportedly came home around 8:30 p.m. to find items missing. Unlike the other case, police could not find evidence of a break-in, and all of the woman's garage-door openers and keys were accounted for, reports stated.
Among the items reported stolen was a variety of jewelry, collectible coins and small electronics.
The investigations are ongoing.
