9. Columbus, Ohio

Number of burglaries: 15,169

In 2011, Columbus experienced 49,043 property offenses, 15,169 of which were burglaries. On the plus side, the city is perhaps better known for the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, which was made famous by former director Jack Hanna, whose regular appearances on the "Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" made for reliably memorable television viewing.
