Thieves Target Columbus Business 3 Times In 7 Months


A Columbus business owner says he cannot afford to stay in business after another break-in at his east Columbus store.

The latest break-in happened overnight Tuesday at United Cellular in the 3400 block of East Broad Street.

The owner, who asked not to be identified, said that thieves entered the building by climbing onto the roof and drilling through a cinderblock wall.

Surveillance cameras captured the masked suspect dodging cameras.

The owner says the suspect made multiple trips and stole $7,000 in cellphones and accessories.

Last month, surveillance cameras captured two unmasked thieves commit a similar crime.

The owner says he is counting on police and the public to help solve these crimes.
