City Police Investigating New
String of Burglaries

City police are investigating a string of burglaries that happened between 10 o’clock last night and 2 o’clock this morning, and may include another break-in on Sunday.

The overnight burglaries happened at the First Presbyterian and St. Bernard’s Catholic churches on East Corydon Street as well as the Farm Restaurant on East Main Street. Police say each of the burglaries involved forced entries into the buildings and property was taken.

City police have also been investigating a similar type burglary Sunday at The Learning Center on Jackson Avenue. As with the other burglaries, force was used to enter the building and minor damage was done, assistant chief Mike Ward said in a news release.

Police say they have no indication whether the commercial burglaries are related to the recent string of occupied home burglaries, the news release said.

They are asking all residents and business owners to continue to check their doors, windows and other access points to make sure they are secure, and to make sure any surveillance and alarm systems are working properly.

The police department will be increasing patrols.

The suspect has not been identified yet, and police are asking that anyone with information on these cases or who recognizes the perpetrator contact City of Bradford Police immediately.
