GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Grand Island Police are investigating two burglaries and an attempted burglary over the weekend.

GIPD Captain Jim Duering said two of the incidents may be connected as they were both in commercial buildings, followed a similar timeline as well as the method of getting in.

GIPD responded to a burglary at Aurora Coop Animal Nutrition, located at 2819 W Old Hwy 30, Sunday night.

A person told police that they found the office area ransacked when they came into work. There were offices that had been gone through and several items had been stolen.

GIPD said the building was forcibly entered on the north side where a pry bar or crow bar was used to get in through the locked door.

Grand Island Police also received a report of an attempted burglary at Jack’s Tire Service over the weekend.

GIPD received a report that someone had tried to pry the back door as well as the overhead door behind the business open. The suspect was unable to get into the building but did cause an estimated $2,500 in damage.

A third burglary was reported Monday morning, but police don’t believe it’s related as it happened in a residential location.

So far, no arrests have been made. If you have any information, you’re asked to call Grand Island Police at 308-385-5400.
