BCPD investigating burglaries

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Officials are investigating burglaries at three local businesses.

According to information provided by the Brazil City Police Department, an unidentified suspect(s) broke into three Brazil businesses, including A Cut Above, 217 E. Church St., Double M Diner, 1421 E National Ave., and Clark's Auto Repair, 1300 E. National Ave., between the time the businesses closed Tuesday and reopened Thursday.

"I looked up to unlock the front door and noticed the TV was gone," A Cut Above owner Jackie Angleton told The Brazil Times about discovering the burglary early Wednesday morning.

Also, she said someone kicked in the back door of the business to gain entry and allegedly went through the cabinets and took a small amount of change.

Officials confirmed a window was broken and several doors were kicked in at Clark's Auto Repair, while the back door was kicked in at Double M Diner. An undisclosed amount of money was reported taken during the burglaries.

Due to the close proximity of the last two businesses located on National Avenue, Brazil Police Chief Larry Pierce said investigators believe the two burglaries could potentially be connected.

"These are the first business burglaries I believe to be reported since I took office this summer (July 16)," Pierce said. "There haven't been any more reports of burglaries so far, but the investigation into these three have definitely kept us busy today."

To report information regarding this criminal investigation, or any other, contact the Brazil City Police Department at 446-2211.

We are fortunate to have Chief Pierce, everyone speaks highly of his love of Brazil and dedication to public service that he has demonstrated throughout his past, whoever brought him in to the police department was really trying to put Brazil and its citizens first .
