The Carrollton Police Department is investigating a series of break-ins that occurred during the weekend at area businesses.
Most of the break-ins were discovered as business owners arrived to open for business on Monday morning, according to Assistant Chief Steve Abbott, who with Patrolman Tim Gividen, responded to the dispatches.
The first call came in at 6:15 a.m., from NAPA Auto Parts at 618 Highland Avenue, Abbott said. A back door to the business had been forced open. It was discovered that about $300 had been taken from the cash register.
