Multiple thefts that New Albany police believe were committed by the same suspect have a total loss that qualifies as a felony, according to New Albany police Sgt. Curtis Baker.

Under Ohio law, theft of more than $1,000 is a felony.

The value of items stolen wasn't specified in the report, and the police department didn't have the figure available by ThisWeek's Oct. 22 press deadline.

The thefts were reported at 2:01 p.m. Oct. 8 in the 5700 block of Traditions Drive, according to police reports.

Baker said stolen property includes a ring, checks and a laptop computer.

Although police have identified a suspect, they haven't charged the person with any crimes as of Oct. 22, he said.
