GEAUGA COUNTY, OHIO - The Geauga County Sheriff’s Department released surveillance photos of two men they said are responsible for a recent rash of car burglaries on SR 422.

"I've been here four years. It's a very quiet area. I was surprised," said gas station attendant Ahmad Eqrai, who said a car was targeted across the street from the Welshfield gas station recently.

Surveillance photos from another gas station show the suspects: a man in a black shirt and an older man in a white shirt.

The problem is deputies have a face for these guys, but not names.

Some who live in this quiet country setting have already been warned.

"My neighbor called me about a week, ten days ago and told me there have been 13 break-ins," said resident Bill Groom.

Deputies said the thieves started their crime spree about two weeks ago.

They would not tell us the exact number of break-ins or the exact locations, saying it would compromise the investigation.

But they did say that sometimes the victims left their doors unlocked.

Other times these crooks just broke out a window.

They took valuables left in the car.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Geauga County Sheriff’s Dept. Det. Mitch Kelly at (440) 279-2063, or CLICK to email.
