SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) – Springfield police are now investigating a rash of burglaries, including six home invasions on Sunday.

Three of the burglaries were in the Ridgewood neighborhood.

According to the police reports, the intruders were spooked by alarms, homeowners or their pets and did not get away with anything in three of the home invasions.  When they were able to remove items from the home, the intruders grabbed TVs, gaming consoles and other electronics.

“The cops did mention that they may have something to do with the heroin epidemic that’s going on too.  A lot of these break-ins they’ll steal like flat screens or Xbox or computers and then they’ll just sell them, so that they can get money for their next fix,” victim Matt Johnson said.

Johnson captured the suspect on home video that he shared with 2 NEWS.

“This is not just a neighborhood where you should just be breaking into places, because we’re not going to just sit around and do nothing. We’re going to make sure that you guys get caught,” Johnson said.

Springfield PD is investigating to see if all six burglaries on Sunday are connected.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Springfield PD.
