CALGARY – Police are investigating a string of break-ins in the city’s northeast.
Investigators said four shops in a strip mall in the 5000 block of Falconridge Boulevard N.E. were broken into just before 11 p.m. on Thursday.
The businesses impacted were Fruiticana, OK Food and Produce, Saigon Passion and Unique Style.
Officers believe the break-ins are likely related, and are working to determine if they’re also connected to several other break-ins in the area.
“There’s been 12 [break-ins] in total between 11 p.m. last night and 4 a.m. this morning,” said Sgt. Travis Juska on Friday.
“It appears they didn’t discriminate, as to what types of businesses they actually broke into. The method of entry was the same on each.”
“What they were looking for inside… we’re still trying to determine.”
It’s unknown what was taken from the businesses, but police say the break-ins caused thousands of dollars in damages.
“Each one seems to have at least one pane glass door broken, some several,” said Sgt. Juska.
No arrests have been made, however, police did locate a stolen vehicle abandoned nearby which may be connected.
Officers have also located CCTV surveillance footage which they hope will aid them in their investigation.
