CARY, N.C. (WTVD) -- Police are asking for the public's help in identifying the suspect in a series of burglaries in the Park Town Commons and Alston Town Center shopping areas on Highway 55.
A total of five businesses were broken into and stripped of cash.
In one case, a cash register was taken.
The suspect entered through the rear doors, causing minor damage to each location in the process.
The following businesses were broken into: Menchie's, 7169 O'Kelly Chapel Road; Penn Station Subs, 5036 Arco St.; Signature Nail Spa, 7173 O'Kelly Chapel Road; Supercuts, 7175 O'Kelly Chapel Road; and Sport Clips, 1231 Parkside Main St.
Each of these businesses was closed at the time of the break-ins and there are no reported injuries related to these cases.
"Profit margin for all small businesses is going to be very small, so any time they take a hit like this it can be very dramatic to their business," said Captain Randall Rhyne with the Cary Police Department's Criminal Investigations Division.
