Police searching for suspects in several burglaries

Posted: Updated:

Police are asking for help in finding in a string of burglaries believed to be connected.

Beginning March 4th through April 10th, several liquor stores and bars have been robbed.

The suspects have been breaking into the facilities between the hours of 4:30 to 6 in the morning. The suspects cut the alarm lines, stealing DVR's and taking money.

Detective Wendy Hummell says the robberies all have similarities. "They all had vending machines or jukeboxes and money was taken from most of those as well. So, because of all that, the detectives have put it together and thinking maybe they're related."  

The locations robbed are: Vixen's located at 200 W. Harry, Mick's 1100 S. Washington, Snoop's 2300 E. Pawnee, Penny's Caravan 2200 N. Coolidge,  and Barron's at 2500 S. Oliver.

There is one other case where a break-in was attempted.

"Obviously whoever is doing this if it's one person or multiple people, they've thought it out and they've planned it out and they know what to do."  Hummell says.

Anyone with information on these burglaries is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111.
