HENRY COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Sheriff's officials are searching for those responsible for several barn break-ins that have mostly occurred in the eastern part of Henry County. 
   
Tools, farming equipment, even power cords have all gone missing.

"It bothered us a lot that someone would have that much nerve to come around and be here without asking," said Sue Meyer, who has experienced a break-in.

Still, it's something that has been happening more and more in Henry County.

"Probably because they're easy to get into. A lot of times, farmers don't lock their barns, or they get in through a back door that we don't really know or pay attention to," explained Meyer.

Meyer says they check on their barns frequently and make sure to lock them now, but authorities are still unsure who broke into her barn.     

One suspect was caught on surveillance video breaking into another barn in the county. Sheriff Michael Bodenbender says he is responsible for at least one theft, but the cases don't seem to be connected.

"We have made a few arrests, and after the arrests, some other barns have still been broken into," said Bodenbender. "I just think it's random."

That's why he says it's important to keep your barn locked. You can also keep your property safe by checking your barn daily, and asking neighbors to keep an eye out, as well.

"Call us if you see something. We would rather check it out and have it be nothing, than have something happen and it's going to take the help of the public to catch these guys," said Bodenbender.
