The Columbus Division of Police have issued a warning about an individual they believe to be related to several Short North break-ins.

According to a statement from Officer Mark Hauenstein, Columbus Police have a suspect in custody they believe is responsible for several crimes in the Short North, and they need your help identifying the person.


“Attached is a photo from a flyer that Parlay Sporting Club + Kitchen had posted in their business.  The suspect is currently in custody.  Detectives are still trying to identify him.  I believe we know who the suspect is but our detectives are trying to identify other victims because we believe this suspect has committed multiple B&E’s to businesses in the Short North,” part of the statement reads.
