Multiple vehicles broken into in the Ashville area Nov. 20.

CIRCLEVILLE — The Pickaway County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a serious of vehicle break-ins Friday in the Ashville-Madison and Walnut township areas of Goodman, Madison-Walnut, and Ett-Noecker roads.

Sheriff’s reports for that day show the first call came from a Walnut Township man who said that between 3-6:30 a.m., someone broke into his black GMC Yukon and rummaged around. He told deputies that taken were his black and silver Springfield 6.5 Compact 9mm handgun with a black hip holster, with an estimated value of $1,100.

The Ett-Noecker Road resident said that he did not have a serial number for the gun, and he does not normally leave his weapon in the vehicle. However, due to a house fire, it slipped his mind.

A male on Madison-Walnut Road called the Sheriff’s Office at 6:02 a.m. upon finding a black flashlight and an empty clear plastic handbag with hair gel near his vehicle. He thought that odd, adding that when he walked his dog outside at 3 a.m., those items were not present. His vehicle hadn’t been broken into. When he returned home, the male inspected several sheds on the property and believed someone entered one by the driveway and took 15 bottles of liquor, with an estimated value of $1,000.

The Sheriff’s Office received two other calls about purported larcenies on Madison-Walnut Road at 6:02 and 6:08 a.m. Another Madison-Walnut resident called authorities at 9:59 a.m. and said an unknown suspect broke into his vehicle at 4:11 a.m. and took $4 and two pocketknives. The caller said his video system recorded the suspect walking up the driveway, but the distance was such that a positive identification of the suspect couldn’t be made.

About 90 minutes later, another call came in from a Goodman Road resident regarding his 2015 Chevy Silverado that someone broke into. The male had surveillance video that captured the suspect on camera, and showed the suspect entering his truck through the passenger side door. The suspect took a plastic container with items the vehicle owner had brought with him from his old office. The items were recovered as they were laying in the neighbor’s yard.
