Grandview Heights police officers were called at 7:31 a.m. July 9 to the 800 block of Baldwin Drive on a criminal damaging report at the clubhouse for Grandview Yard residents.
According to police reports, an on-duty supervisor found glass panes in two doors broken from inside the building that is a recreation center for tenants.
Surveillance video showed a male suspect jumping the gated fence surrounding the pool and making a forced entry to the building by damaging a third door inside the gated area. The video showed the suspect damaging the other two doors once he got inside.
A maintenance worker at an apartment building in the 800 block of Yard Street told officers a suspicious male asked to use his phone. The worker gave police a description of the man and it matched the suspect seen in the surveillance video, according to reports.
The suspect, a 30-year-old man who lives in the 800 block of Northwest Boulevard in Grandview, was located entering a vehicle driven by a woman at Baldwin and Rail Street. The man was detained without incident, according to reports.
The woman told officers she had come to pick up the suspect after he called her. She was released after giving police a written statement.
Shortly after the man was detained, two residents who live in the apartment building reported he had entered their apartment overnight.
Both residents said nothing was believed to have been taken from their apartments.
The suspect was charged with felony counts of burglary and vandalism for the incident at the clubhouse and a felony count of burglary and possession of criminal tools for the break-ins at the apartment building. A third victim reportedly did not want to pursue criminal charges or file an incident report.
The man was arraigned on the charges July 10 in Franklin County Municipal Court. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Friday, July 19.
