* A Grayson, Kentucky, man told police his car, valued at $9,000 was stolen March 20 from the parking lot of a motel in the 1900 block of Stringtown Road. The man said he was preparing to check out and started his car at 4:38 a.m. He went back inside his room to get his belongings and came out two minutes later to find his car was gone.

* A resident in the 1400 block of Gateway Lakes North reported a large number of tools were stolen from his work van while it was parked at his house between 7 p.m. March 24 and 6:58 a.m. March 25. Total loss was $2,620, reports stated.
* A Columbus woman reported her diamond wedding-ring set, valued at $1,500, was stolen March 26 from the women's locker room at a facility in the 4000 block of Parkmead Drive.
The woman said the theft occurred between 3 and 4:45 p.m. while she was working out.
The facility manager told police a suspicious woman had been in the facility at the same time the ring was discovered missing. He said the woman was not a member of the facility and asked about joining. She could not make an application because she did not any identification, so the manager said he told her she could have a one-day trial pass.
He said the woman signed the pass and gave a Chillicothe address. The manager said the woman went into the locker room and stayed for a long period of time but never changed clothes or used equipment before leaving the building.
Police checked the address the woman used and found it belonged to her mother. They found several cases on the Franklin County Municipal Court website where a woman with the same name and an Orient address had been in court on theft charges, reports stated.
Grove City police have not filed charges in this case.
