During the investigation, officers learned three suspects forced entry into five separate businesses within minutes of each other.  Once inside the businesses, the suspects removed money and merchandise.  The suspects then exited the businesses and left in a two door vehicle.  An additional business was broken into a short distance away in the same manner, but it unknown at this time whether this burglary is related to the others.


The suspects were captured on surveillance video during the burglaries.  The suspects were wearing masks, hoodies and gloves to conceal their identities.
