Another incident in a recent string of smash and grab robberies has left one Columbus business without a cash register, and with a shattered front door.

According to a statement released by Columbus Police, on Dec. 5, an individual entered a business located on the 3800 block of Cleveland Avenue after smashing the front door with a concrete block.

Once inside, the store’s security camera captured the suspect locating the cash register, unplugging it from the wall, and stealing the entire thing.


Police released a video of the theft, which you can watch here.

This recent smash and grab theft is one of several that have taken place in the North Linden area since early November.
