AKRON, OH – Cascade Village has been a target for thieves lately.

Over the Fourth of July weekend, they broke into several homes, stealing all kinds of valuables. Then on Friday, police say it happened again.

"They're stealing stuff and doing malicious things like trashing with flour, oil, grease on the floors and ripping smoke detectors off the ceilings,” said Jimilee Hoover.

She lives in the development and said she’s getting frustrated. She doesn’t understand why anyone would do that.

"I can't imagine how my neighbor is going to feel because this is the second time her unit's been broken into this year,” she said.

Police said they arrested two people in connection to Friday’s home invasion, but it’s unclear if they’ll be charged with anything or if they were involved with any of the other break ins.

"It's people that know what cars are here. It has to be because other than that, how are you just going to know it's my house and I'm not home for the whole weekend?” said Chynna Blackmon.

She said someone tried to break into her home over the holiday weekend, but were unsuccessful.

"When I came home, I saw that there was a chair in front of my pillar. They tried to get through my window and break in, but my alarm stopped them,” she said.

FOX 8 reached out to the Cascade Village’s management company for a comment, and they said they are aware of what’s going on and are looking at ways to help make residents feel more safe.
