MASON, OH (FOX19)
Several police agencies are investigating a series of burglaries between Mason and Middletown.
Four businesses in Mason were broken into overnight.
Police say they believe the same suspects are responsible for a total of 24 burglaries in the area within the last two weeks.
The suspects have been breaking glass front doors with a rock, then stealing cash registers.
Business owners said it will cost them more to replace the damaged doors than what the suspects stole in cash.
The merchants hit in Mason were the Sugarplum Cupcakery, Cincinnati Team Apparel, Zoom Nails and Alteration & Tailoring.
Involved police agencies are holding a meeting Tuesday afternoon.
