With his parents by his side, a Columbus teenager turned himself in Tuesday, admitting he was partly responsible for a string of burglaries beginning Aug. 17 in Columbus.
The 15-year-old was being questioned by the Columbus Police Department about 15 burglaries in the northern area of town. CPD spokesperson Lt. Matt Myers said the teen is cooperating. He said some stolen items already have been recovered.
The weekend of Aug. 17 through 19, burglars made off with money after breaking into and ransacking several businesses. Police thought all seven burglaries were related because of the similarity of the forced entries - generally, the doors were pried open - and the fact that the businesses were ransacked.
The teenager being questioned told authorities two other teens were involved in three of the burglaries. He said those teenagers are from a foreign country and have since left the U.S.
