Detectives are continuing to process the stolen property and reach out to the victims as they are identified.
Many items including cell phones, backpacks, jackets and tools have not been linked to a specific case.
Detectives are asking victims of the car break-ins in the west Columbia area to leave a message at 410-313-STOP with their contact information, description of the item and case number if applicable.
Victims should also share whether or not they filed an initial police report at the time of the theft.
