Two people were arrested Friday in connection with a string of Westerville burglaries.
Joseph A. Ennemoser Jr., 38, and Kelly A. Cline, 29, were arrested after police caught them inside a Grove City home.
Detectives said that they targeted homes where no one was home and spent an average of 40 seconds to two minutes inside, heading for jewelry, gun cases and garages.
Police said that Ennemoser and Cline were staying at a hotel during their alleged burglary spree, and a search warrant of their room uncovered a large amount of jewelry and other items, including tools, guns and a hatchet.
According to police, the couple’s truck with a ladder rack led them right to the two.
“That’s what we were looking for was the truck,” said Westerville Lt. Paul Scowden. “It was something that was kind of out of the ordinary, and we focused in on that, and that’s what helped us.”
The couple was behind held at the Franklin County Jail.
Westerville Police, the Delaware County Drug Task Force, the Columbus Police Strategic Response Bureau Enforcement South and the Ohio State Highway Patrol participated in the investigation.
