Bainbridge police investigating business burglaries

Bainbridge Public Safety is investigating several break-ins at local businesses occurring over the past few days.

In the most recent incident reported, Public Safety Officer Pat Bryant was dispatched to a tanning business called Catchin’ Rays, located at 600 E. Calhoun St. An employee reported that the business’ surveillance video showed two black males enter the rear of the store at approximately 2 a.m. on Monday, July 27.

The burglars were wearing t-shirts on their heads and opened the doors to the tanning booths. One of the suspects was wearing black gym shorts and black shoes, while the other was wearing white gym shorts with yellow and black stripes.

However, nothing was reported missing or damaged inside the business.

Break-ins were also reported within the last week at:

  • Bonnie Blue House, 713 Calhoun St., reported Monday morning, July 27. Someone broke in through the back door and stole some bottles of beer and liquor.
  • Cash Cow, 100 Calhoun Street, reported Monday morning, July 27. Someone broke in through a glass panel and stole cash.

Bainbridge Public Safety investigators are looking into leads in the break-ins and are asking for the public’s help to prevent any future break-ins.

“If anyone sees someone hanging out around businesses that are closed at night and appears suspicious, please call 911 or the police department at 248-2038,” BPS Investigator Chris Jordan said.
