The Covington News - - LOCAL - STAFF RE­PORTS news@cov­

A string of at­tempted bur­glar­ies stormed through U.S. 278 early Wed­nes­day morn­ing, leav­ing shat­tered glass in their wake.

The first of the three at­tempted bur­glar­ies was re­ported at 4:56 a.m. at Firehouse Subs. Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, glass was found bro­ken from the front door. After the sand­wich shop’s key holder ar­rived, he ad­vised CPD that noth­ing was miss­ing, but it was ev­i­dent the sus­pect was look­ing for money, pulling out draw­ers.

At 5:16 a.m., CPD re­ceived re­ports of a bur­glary alarm at Metro PCS. CPD saw glass on the front door and lower win­dow on the right side of the door busted out, with two large rocks ly­ing on the floor inside the store. A K-9 unit, Sul­tan, was called in, but did not lo­cate any­one. Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, the man­ager did not no­tice any items miss­ing.

The fi­nal call of the morn­ing came at 5:39 a.m. in re­sponse to a bro­ken win­dow in the front door of the Lit­tle Cae­sars.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports there was a large rock ly­ing in front of the front door, and the glass was cracked but not busted com­pletely.

No en­try into the build­ing oc­curred.
