Three Businesses Burglarized; Police Suspect Them To Be In Connection

Three separate businesses were targeted for burglaries during the past three weeks in Morro Bay. Based on the current investigation, Officers now believe these burglaries may be connected with the same suspect or suspects. Evidence found at the scene of a recent burglary to the Morro Bay Eagle’s lodge points toward a similar method used during the commission of two separate burglaries to “The Shirt Shop” on Front St., and “Lucia’s Apothecary” on the Embarcadero. Cash was taken from all three businesses, amounting to over $1000 in total.
Morro Bay Police are also working with California State Parks officials and Pismo Beach Police Department on recent burglaries to businesses in their areas, which may also be related.
