Camper thefts leave vehicles damaged, missing TVs

A couple of recreational vehicles are missing some amenities after break-ins over the weekend at the Columbus Camper Center, 1781 Box Road, police report.

Manager Randall Allen called police Saturday to report that four of the campers had been damaged and some appliances stolen.

Thieves broke out a front window on a Forest River Puma valued at $20,000 and stole a TV. The repair costs were estimated at $1,500. Also hit was a Keystone Sprinter, worth $23,000, from which a TV and TV stand were taken after the intruders broke a side window. That damage also was estimated at $1,500.

Windows were broken on two others, a Keystone Hornet five-wheel worth $20,000 and a Gulfstream Conquest worth $16,000, with the damage to each estimated at $500, police said.

Investigators checked the vehicles for fingerprints.
