Series of burglaries may be connected

A number of local businesses have experienced burglaries in the past two weeks, and police suspect they may be connected.
"In Ephrata Borough in recent weeks we’ve had two pizza shop burglaries, but they were similar in their commission with several other burglaries of small locally owned restaurants," said Lt. Chris McKimm from the Ephrata Police Department.
Restaurants that have been broken into include Little Nicki’s Pizza and J.D.’s Pazzo Pizza in Ephrata, Pepe’s Pizza in Clay Township and La Borimex Restaurant in New Holland. Subway, Alure Spa-Lon and Treasure Nook, all shops in the Sharp Shopper Plaza in Clay Township, were also burglarized recently. The glass in the front doors of many of the shops and restaurants were smashed in, and the burglar(s) stole cash from several of the sites.
"We’re very concerned about these burglaries," Lt. McKimm said. "We’ve taken some proactive measures by visiting what we’ve determined to be possible targets and asking them to take certain actions to prevent burglaries from occurring." One such preventative measure is for business owners to refrain from keeping money in their stores overnight and to announce this fact by putting up signs. Police will also post night patrols at businesses they believe to be at risk.
Area detectives are meeting to compare similarities among the burglaries and to develop investigative strategies.
