DETROIT -

Detroit police are asking for the public's help in getting information on two men who could be connected to a string of burglaries at fast food restaurants.

On Christmas, three fast food restaurants (two McDonald’s and one Burger King) were broken into overnight on the city’s east and west side.

The robbers entered the location and attempted to empty the cash safe. No one was injured during these incidents.

A burglar alarm at the McDonald's on the 14000 block of Gratiot alerted Detroit police at 6:30 a.m. When officers arrived, they found a rear window broken out on the south side of the restaurant.

At 9:10, police responded to a breaking and entering at the Burger King on the 13000 block of West McNichols, where it was determined that suspects entered by breaking the side glass door. Once inside, the suspects pried open the safe that was located behind the counter, taking an undisclosed amount of money.

At 10:40 a.m., units responded to a breaking and entering at the McDonald’s Fast Food restaurant located on the 14000 block of West Seven Mile Road. The suspects entered the location by breaking out a glass of the front door. Officers also noticed that the safe was pried open but was empty.

If anyone has any information on this case, please contact the Detroit Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Bureau at telephone number: (313) 596-1420 or Crime Stoppers at telephone number: 1-800-SPEAK-UP (1-800-773-2587); the callers can remain anonymous.
