COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Investigators say more than a dozen break-ins at animal shelters across Ohio could be related.

Authorities say they are working together to try to solve the burglaries that have plagued shelters since early January. They believe the primary target was money.

Since Jan. 9 shelters have been hit in Ashland, Champaign, Delaware, Hancock, Hardin, Huron, Knox, Logan, Madison, Marion, Medina, Morrow, Muskingum, Seneca, Washington and Wayne counties. Other shelters in Ohio have been warned about the burglaries.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that electronics, office supplies, checks and hard drives have been taken at various shelters. Veterinary drugs were taken from the shelter in Madison County, but those drugs, money and other items were in a safe that was stolen.
