Multiple Break-Ins Investigated in Marietta

More Video...

Marietta Police investigate five break-ins Tuesday night.
Those include two cars, one house and two restaurants.

The Townhouse and The Galley were hit, and investigators believe are linked to the robbers.

Marietta Police say the Townhouse was broken into first.

Then the suspects went to The Galley, where the alarm system went off.

Police responding believe they caught them in the act at The Galley, breaking in through a side window, but they escaped through a back door.

Inside the Townhouse the suspects broke into the game and music machines, ripping out the change and leaving the place a mess.

They broke in through the back door, also searching behind the counter for any cash.

There was no cash in the register.

Police don't think they took liquor at either restaurant, but owners are counting their supplies.

"We noticed the back door had been pried open, the lower door that goes into the back of the basement had been kicked in," says Errol Kramer, with the Marietta Police Department.

"Because there is no alarm at the Townhouse, they would have hit this first, and then came over and set the alarm off at The Galley," says Jake Dennison, with the Marietta Police Department.

This all happened between 3 and 5 Wednesday morning.

Police say there were also two car break-ins Tuesday night, with the suspect getting a briefcase out of one car.

A house was also hit, but no information was released about what was taken.
Investigators don't think the house and car break-ins are tied to the restaurants.

Marietta Police are looking at security cameras, fingerprints and more.

They ask if anyone saw someone or knows something to please call the police department at 740-376-2007.
