Leads in recent burglary sought
AMHERST – Police continue to develop leads in the recent rash of burglaries reported at businesses along Route 101A, and are asking anyone with information to contact the department.
One of the businesses that was hit, Sunrise Daycare, reported the theft of roughly $600, which had been collected in a recent fundraiser for classroom enrichment projects, police said.
Surveillance footage that police obtained from one of the businesses captured images of a man, who appears to be in his late 20s or early 30s. Police hope someone can identify him.
The break-ins are believed to have occurred in the early morning of Saturday, Nov. 19, and appear to be related, police said. Owners or employees of Kathy Blake Dance Studio, Gymnastics Village and DAPR Engineering also reported burglaries of their businesses.
The suspect or suspects forced entry into each of the businesses, police said, and made off with several laptop computers and various amounts of money they believe was taken from petty cash containers.
Police urge anyone with information about the burglaries or suspects to call 673-4900.
