Police are investigating after at least six businesses were broken into over the last three weeks in East Long Beach.

The first incident was reported on June 13 along Second Street in Belmont Shore, and the break-ins have continued weekly, with the most recent happening early Tuesday morning along Seventh Street near Bixby Village, according to authorities.

There is no suspect information available at this point, according to police, who said they’re still not sure whether the incidents are related. But the circumstances surrounding the burglaries have been similar.

Each incident involved an unknown suspect(s) disabling an outside lockbox, and in most cases, the keys were used to enter the business,” according to the Long Beach Police Department. The suspects then fled the scene before officers arrived, police said. 

What was stolen differed per case, with police saying it included miscellaneous paperwork and electronics. Though they couldn’t say what kind of electronics as “further elaborating on these items would affect the investigation,” according to police.

In the meantime, police say they’ve increased patrols in the affected areas to deter further burglaries. Officers are also working with business owners to share safety tips and gather more evidence that may help identify any suspects, police said.

Anyone with information can contact detectives at 562-670-7351.
