RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The Reno Police Department has seen a series of commercial burglaries occurring this month where the suspects are targeting smaller stores and restaurants.

RPD says the burglaries started in early March of 2013. They have gotten over 17 reports in Reno, primarily in the south area of town.

Recently, the suspects have begun to target businesses near downtown, and two other cases have been reported in northwest Reno.

The two suspects have been breaking into the businesses with cash registers in plain view between the hours of midnight and 4am.

In most of the incidents, RPD says the suspects break out a window and enter the business, disregarding any alarm system. The suspects spend little time inside, and run directly to the safes and cash registers. The suspects are captured on video, and are seen wearing hooded clothing, gloves and face masks.

The Reno Police Department is concerned these suspects will continue to hit these local businesses, and are asking the public's assistance in identifying the two suspects.

Suspect #1: White male adult, 5'9 - 6'0, wearing a black hoodie, black bandanna with a white pattern, blue jeans and black shoes with white soles.

Suspect #2: White male adult, 5'9 -6'0, wearing a black hoodie, black mask, blue jeans, and black shoes with white soles.

Anyone having information relating to this crime or the suspect(s) should contact the Reno Police Department at 334-2115, Secret Witness at 322-4900, www.secretwitness.com, or text the tip to 847411 (TIP 411) keyword - SW

If people are dumb enough to leave the money in the cash registers then guess they will get robbed. The cash register is the first place one goes at least hide the money and make them earn the robbery.

is this an offshoot of the "$hoplocal" campaign? maybe rpd should concentrate on the snazzy midtown "district". look for these guys to 'recycle" their costumes now that we know sooomuch about them.
