RENO, NV - The Reno Police Department has had a rash of commercial burglaries occurring throughout the city over the last three months, and those burglaries appear to be continuing.
According to police the burglaries started in mid March, and since that time, over forty burglaries of small businesses and convenience stores have occurred. The suspects appear to be targeting these types of businesses, and only taking cash and liquor.

The suspects are breaking the front glass doors to gain entry, and immediately targeting cash registers and cash drawers. It appears to police through surveillance video that two suspects are involved, and they have concealed their identity with masks and gloves.
