NORWALK, Conn. – Norwalk police received reports of burglaries at three businesses -- two doughnut shops and an ice cream shop -- in the city overnight Wednesday.
Two of the businesses hit were Dunkin’ Donuts locations, according to police reports. Employees at the Dunkin' Donuts stores at 650 West Ave. and 81 N. Main St. both reported that locks had been damaged on the front doors of the businesses overnight.
The cash registers at both Dunkin’ Donuts stores had been opened, but cash was inside them at only one location, police say. About $300 was reported stolen from the North Main location, according to police reports.
The third burglary was reported at Dairy King on Main Street. As in the other cases, a lock was removed from the outer door of the business sometime overnight. A cash register, a safe and an arcade machine were all broken into and emptied, according to the police report.
Approximately $300 was taken from the cash register, but investigators were unsure how much was in the safe and the arcade machine, police say.
Video surveillance from one of the locations showed two young men committing the burglaries, according to police reports. At the time they were wearing hooded sweatshirts and masks. The incidents were still under investigation.
