Rash of car-break-ins pepper Perrysburg

For the second straight year, shortly after school ended for the summer, there has been a rash of car break-ins around Perrysburg.

Friday night and Saturday morning, nine cars were entered in Meigs on the River subdivision and taken were laptops, cash, iPod accessories, and a gift card.

Perrysburg police say they have no leads or suspects and do not know whether the crimes were done by one person or more.

“A person entered unlocked cars,” said Deputy Chief Jim Rose. “We encourage people to lock vehicles and put valuables out of sight and inside at night.”

The break-ins occurred on north and south Ridge Roads. One car had a print wallet taken with $200, debit card, $140 check, IDs, and iPod headphones and charger taken. Another unlocked car had $25 taken, a $50 Cracker Barrel gift card, and iPod cord taken.

A HP Silver laptop was taken from one car, along with two passports and a business briefcase and eight flash drives. 

A mile away on Dogwood Lane, someone threw a shoe through a back window. The owner said it might cost about $1,000 to replace the window, according to the police report. The police were able to take the shoe in for evidence.
