New Rash of Boone Business Break-ins PDF Print

A rash of recent business break-ins has the Boone Police Department asking for the public’s assistance. Boone Police responded Wednesday morning to a breaking and entering that had been discovered at Xtreme Fitness on Highway 105.  Officers soon discovered two additional nearby businesses had been broken into overnight, as has been the case in a number of recent incidents. In the first month of this year there have been approximately fifteen businesses broken into in Boone.  They are believed to have been perpetrated by the same person or group of people as the method of entries and types of property taken have been similar.  The suspect has pried windows and/or doors, and then subsequently searched drawers, registers, and other areas likely to contain cash.  Businesses targeted have lacked alarm or surveillance equipment and the doors or windows entered are in areas of darkness or not easily visible to passers by.  Various types of businesses have been targeted.
Businesses in the Town of Boone are urged to consider their security situation and take preventative measures.  Do not leave cash in the business location and make deposits as necessary.  Citizens are urged to report any suspicious activity to police.
