Weekly crime map: Dec. 6-12

tstevens@ledger-enquirer.comDecember 18, 2013 

We drift closer to the holidays with this week's map. Click here to check out last week's crime map.

For newcomers to the map, a note: it isn't meant to be comprehensive. Columbus law enforcement sometimes make hundreds of arrests in a week, most mundane and some with little information useful to the public.

Instead of mapping each individual report, we've highlighted the crimes we've written about throughout the week. We've also made an effort to mark areas that have seen multiple burglaries or property crimes during the week.

Icons represent the types of crimes committed. Here's the breakdown:

• Boxing gloves: Unarmed assaults and batteries

• Gun: Armed assaults and gun related crimes

• Money bag: Robberies, burglaries and property crimes

• Pill: Drug related offenses

• Car: Wrecks, grand theft autos and car related offenses

• Dollar sign: Counterfeit money or financial fraud

Because some incidences happened at the same or almost the same location, users may have to zoom in close to see every entry.

Shortly after the end of the month, I'll post a map with all of the weekly markings along with analysis about a trending crime.

Check out November's monthly crime map here, and October's map here. You can also find September's map here.
