The supplied the following information. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.
Callers on Hildana Road reported at least four motor vehicle thefts between July 6 and July 8, Shaker Heights Police Lt. Jeff DeMuth said.
In each incident, cars were left unlocked.
One resident reported that an unknown person entered a vehicle between 11:50 a.m. July 6 and 7:30 a.m on July 7. A GPS unit was stolen. Another Hildana resident reported a stolen GPS from an unlocked vehicle between 6 p.m. on July 6 and 11 a.m. the following day.
Another report says a car was entered between 11 p.m. and 8:45 a.m. July 6-7. Nothing was taken from that vehicle.
DeMuth said police have yet to find any suspects.
"It's one or two people doing this," he said. "Absolutely. It's under investigation."
Later on July 7, police received a call for a disturbance on Hildana. Two neighbors were arguing, with one accusing the other's son of breaking into the residence. DeMuth didn't say there was a connection between this event and the vehicle break-ins, but the juvenile was advised not to trespass on other's property.
Yet another resident on the street reported a vehicle break-in. The caller said a driver's registration was taken from the car between 3 a.m. and 8:20 a.m. on July 8.
