Sheriff’s Report: Four vehicles burglarized in Jeremy Ranch

Dec. 14-17, 2016


The Summit County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a string of vehicle burglaries that took place over the weekend in the Jeremy Ranch neighborhood.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, the owners of four unlocked vehicles contacted dispatch to report that money and alcohol were stolen from the vehicles sometime between 10 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 8, and 6 a.m. Friday, Dec. 9.

“At this time it is an active investigation. There is a possibility that a suspect has been identified, but at this time we can’t comment,” said Kacey Bates, a detective. “

Bates said they do not believe the incidents are related to another string of burglaries that occurred in the Silver Springs neighborhood last month.
