Grandview Heights police responded early April 10 to burglar alarms at two businesses on Goodale Boulevard.
Officers were dispatched at 3:10 a.m. to a burglar alarm at a business on the 900 block of Goodale and, on arrival, discovered a door had been forced open.
Five chain saws, together worth $6,715, were stolen, reports said.
An employee of a business on the 1200 block of Goodale told police a truck driver found the delivery bay door was damaged when he arrived at 5:30 a.m. the same day.
The manager reviewed surveillance video and discovered someone had used a vehicle to ram the door in an apparent attempt to enter the business.
