Daily Journal staff reports
An alarm at one Greenwood business alerted police to four break-ins at offices in the same shopping center.
Greenwood police think the same person is responsible for the break-ins at Wachovia Securities, Nasco Industries, the Fraser Group and Ameriprise Financial Services early Friday on Library Park Drive, said Jim Prior, Greenwoood Police Department commander of investigations.
Police do not have any suspects, Prior said.
Officers responded to an alarm at Wachovia Securities at 2:09 a.m. and discovered someone had pried open the business’s front door as well as the front doors at three other businesses, Prior said.
Several computers were stolen from the businesses, but no cash was taken, he said.
Prior said the investigators are looking into whether the businesses have surveillance cameras that would show any suspects.
