The San Luis Obispo Police Department is investigating four commercial burglaries that appear to have happened after the businesses closed on Tuesday.
Businesses struck by the burglars were Goodwill Industries, Alano Club, Vallarta's restaurant and Pancho's restaurant. At each business, a window was smashed and money was taken from thecash register.
Investigators have since learned that similar commercial burglaries have been reported in several other local cities this month, including a burglary at Blue Sky Café in Morro Bay on May 22.
Police have released images captured from video surveillance of that burglary as they investigate whether the recent rash of burglaries is connected.
