Police said that about 3:30 a.m. Friday, someone drove a vehicle into the brick building of Sharky's Eat and 8 on Hillsborough Road. The glass front door was boarded back up and broken pieces of brick could be seen scattered on the sidewalk.
Police told ABC11 that a cash register was stolen, but it's unclear how much money was inside.
Then, about 5:55 a.m., officers were called to Ferguson Plumbing on East Lawson Street. Police said someone drove a car through the glass sliding front door, went inside, smashed the front counter, and pried open the cash drawers. Officers said very little money was taken.
