More than 10 vehicles were burglarized in the Silver Springs neighborhood east of State Road 224 over the weekend, according to the Summit County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies responded to 13 separate incidents involving vehicle burglaries between Friday, Nov. 18, and Sunday, Nov. 20. Most of the vehicles that were accessed were reportedly unlocked and undamaged, according to the report.
A pair of sunglasses and CDs were among the items reported missing. Several other vehicles were also thought to be accessed, but no items were stolen. No suspects have been identified and an investigation is ongoing.
"It appears they were after cash because valuables were left behind in some of these vehicles," said Lt. Andrew Wright. "We had two more burglaries come in early Sunday morning in Silver Springs and they appear to all be related."
According to the Sheriff's Office, deputies also responded to numerous other calls between Monday, Nov. 14, and Saturday, Nov. 19, including four cases involving fraudulent activity.
