WADSWORTH, OH -- Police are investigating a rash of recent break-ins.

The crime is troubling and upsetting for some of the residents there, especially who park outside.

Wadsworth police tell FOX 8 News the thieves have been taking items like GPS units, cell phones, wallets, purses and electronic devices.

"It makes me feel like they are being defiled or something, you know? It really makes me feel bad for them," said resident Wilma Rose.

Some of the areas hit are Ohio and Highland Avenue along with North Pardee Street, according to police.

"Nobody has the right to take from somebody if it's not yours," said Steven Dutt, who has lived in town for several years.

"For them to come and steal, it's just not good," he said.

"If you see something, you've got to say something," said Wadsworth resident Mike Maroni.

Police in Wadsworth don't have suspects, but they are asking people to be vigilant. If you see something suspicious, report it right away and make sure to lock your doors.

"Try to keep things locked up. I know I'm not always good at it, not always perfect at it, but I try to keep the car locked," Maroni added.

Wadsworth police say if you notice suspicious activity in your neighborhood, call them right away. Also, it's always a good idea to park in a well-lit area and don't leave valuable items in your vehicle.
