Community Advisory & Crime Prevention Tips Re: Commercial Burglaries - From Bothell Police Department

Since mid-April, the Bothell Police Dept. has seen an increase in commercial burglaries. Several of these burglaries have occurred at retail businesses that sell scratch lottery tickets, cigarettes and energy drinks/pills. Entry into the businesses was most commonly made by breaking door or window glass, sometimes using nearby rocks. While inside, the burglars have also targeted cash registers and safes. All of the reported burglaries have occurred while the businesses were closed, with most occurring in the early morning hours between midnight and 6:00AM.
