Anderson Police Investigating A String Of Burglaries

Posted: Updated:

Anderson City Police Department is investigating a string of burglaries.

Four businesses on Main Street were broken into early Wednesday morning. Police believe the burglaries are all connected because they all follow the same pattern. The burglar broke the glass in a window or door then quickly went through the store looking for cash.

Police say this type of crime is unusual in this area. They conduct routine patrols at night and they are stepping up those patrols in the wake of these burglaries.

"We do react to crimes of this nature, we step up patrols in the area and step up our presence just to be seen," says Lt. Tony Tilley with Anderson City Police Department.

One of the business owners believes her business was scoped out days before the break in. Police also say they have surveillance video that they are working with to identify the suspect.  They're also hoping people will call in tips to crime stoppers. Tips can be called into Crime Stoppers at 888-CRIME-SC
