Police: Columbus burglar entered businesses through roofs

Posted: Updated:

Columbus police say a man burglarized local businesses by entering through the roof to avoid triggering the alarm.

Video obtained from businesses shows Charles Johnson, 31,  entering businesses and primarily stealing cigarettes, Columbus police say. Detectives viewed the video from one of the burglaries and were able to positively identify the suspect from a mug shot comparison.

Police say Johnson, who was already in jail, has confessed to burglarizing businesses on Dawson Street, Cusseta Road, Victory Drive and Buena Vista Road in both June and July.
