Business burglaries may be related
League City police believe the theft of $10,000 in cash, five flatscreen televisions and four laptops during Thursday's burglary of a League City nail salon may be related to other business-related break-ins.
While investigating the early morning burglary of Donald's Donuts, which is in a strip center at 2251 W. FM 646, police noticed that next-door business Foxy Nail Salon had also been victimized, League City Police Lt. Bruce Whitten said. Someon broke into the salon through its front door, he said.
The five flatscreen Samsung televisions together are worth $6,000, and the four laptops are valued a total of $3,400, Whitten said.
Police suspect the burglaries of the saloon and doughnut shop are related to break-ins last week at the UPS Store, 2925 S. Gulf Freeway, and New York Pizzeria, 1660 W. FM 646, he said.
The thief was unsuccessful in entering the UPS Store between last Tuesday night and Wednesday morning because the business had an interior magnetic lock, Whitten said. The pizzeria was broken in to through its front door between 4 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. last Wednesday, he said.
The restaurant had a $700 television and $831 in cash stolen, Whitten said. Its surveillance camera captured video of a white man with a medium build and short hair entering the business, walking towards the kitchen area and taking a 40-inch flatscreen television, he said.
Police have no suspects, but believe the breaks-ins are likely all related, Whitten said.
They're similar in that they involve going through the front of the business, somehow defeating the locking mechanisms and getting inside," Whitten said.
Those with information are asked to call 281-338-8210.
