Police in Upper Arlington said that criminals have been targeting vehicles across the city.
Investigators responded to more than 40 vehicle break-ins so far in September.
Ed and Kay Ferris bought their Upper Arlington home, on Collingswood Road, more than four decades ago. They said they thought of theirs was a quiet neighborhood until days ago when their cars were ransacked.
"I just came in here and saw all the mess and then I just backed up and closed the door," Kay Ferris said.
She said it looked like her SUV had been turned upside down. Thieves took her change, cash and cell phone.
Ferris said that her husband's car suffered the same fate.
"There's no respect," Kay Ferris said.
Police said that all drivers need to be vigilant and remember to lock their doors and remove anything valuable, even spare change. No arrests have been made in connection with the break-ins.
