Vons shopping center burglarized again

The Claremont Police Department responded to the Claremont Heights Postal Center at 2058 N. Mills Ave. on Friday, April 19 at about 6:30 a.m. in reference to the report of a smashed front door.

The suspect(s) smashed the front glass door with an unknown object, which allowed them to gain entry into the business where they removed money from the register.

There is no suspect(s) information at this time.

Businesses in the Vons Shopping Center were hit recently, including Euro Café, Rincon Azteca restaurant and Dr. Robert Burwell’s dental practice. A string of burglaries city-wide have occurred in recent weeks with similar results—smashed front windows or doors with burglars gaining entry to take cash.

The police held an informational meeting last Wednesday at the Chamber of Commerce to provide crime prevention tips to business owners. A story on the meeting is included in the Friday, April 19 edition of the COURIER.

Please contact the Claremont Police Department at 399-5411 with any information.
