Some Ohio State students said that they were on edge Tuesday night because of a number of break-ins and thefts near campus.
Marcus Dunn, a sophomore at Ohio State, said that he was not home when a thief broke into his off-campus house on Sunday morning, 10TV's Danielle Elias reported.
"My computer normally sits over here, but I figure he came in and took the computer. I had a GPS and iPod down here, which are now gone," Dunn said.
His roommate, Jon Ross Shields, was in the home sleeping at the time.
"My phone was sitting right here on the floor. Come down here, it's not there anymore. TV, Xbox gone from the living room," Shields said. "After I realized my car was gone, TV gone, then I'm like, ‘OK we definitely got robbed.’"
There was no visible damage to the home, Shields said.
"I know it's not the safest place, but it never crosses your mind like, ‘It won't happen to me,’" Dunn said.
One day later, another break-in occurred at a home along Indianola Avenue, Elias reported.
"I had an air conditioner in this window. I came home and that was pushed out on the ground, and I had a Play Station 3 and that was missing, along with five games and three controllers," Ohio State student Todd Hertel said.
Josh Pladers, an Ohio State senior was also a victim of crime, Elias reported.
"It's almost become a recurring expense, like a bike expense, you know," Pladers said.
Police found Sheilds’ car a short distance from his home while scanning license plates, the same day of the break-in, Elias reported.
