CLINTONVILLE (Jen French)A brazen burglar busted into several businesses in Clintonville early Saturday morning. As police try to piece together a potential pattern, business owners are forced to clean up the mess.
According to police, at least three businesses were broken into in the 2000 block of North High Street between 5:00 and 7:00 AM. A trail of broken glass was found outside of the Taste of Orient, Cup of Joe and Lavash.
Nasir Latif, the owner of Lavash, said the burglar left a mess but didnt take anything from his restaurant.
"If he was hungry--we'd be glad to feed him. You know? Latif said.
Employees at the Cup of Joe noticed their store was broken into after 6:00 AM.
The cops have a theory that it was probably a distraction move, Cash Beraun said, Cup of Joe manager.
Beraun said several Clintonville residents have also complained about recent break-ins.
