KENNEWICK, WA - Kennewick Police are looking for the people involved in separate nine burglaries over the weekend.

Police say five businesses and four homes were vandalized and burglarized Friday, Saturday and Sunday throughout different parts of town. 

Officers say they don not know if all nine burglaries are related, but it is an extraordinary amount in one weekend. 

Police say on Friday, a small window was pushed in at Skimpy's Coffee on Columbia Drive, where someone took cash from the register.

Officers say that day, someone also broke into a storage unit at Phoenix Mini Storage on Fruitland. Police say the thieves cut the lock on the door and took four cases of Monarch Rum.

Also on Friday, officers say someone cut the lock to a storage garage on 10th Avenue and stole a car stereo and tires from a car.

Lastly on Friday, Police say someone broke the back window of a home and forced the front door open, where they took a TV, DVD player, jewelry and bottles of alcohol. 

On Saturday, officers say someone broke a bedroom window with a rock and stole a TV, a desktop computer and an iPod.

Officers say also that day, someone broke into 6 work trucks at Pavement Surface Control on Dayton Street.

Also on Saturday, police say someone forced open the front door of the Eagles Club on Fruitland, and took money from a donation jar. Police say a security camera in the area shows at least three people getting away in a smaller car, possibly a Dodge Caliber.

Saturday, officers say someone also pried open the window at Forsythe Satellite/Boost Mobile on Kennewick Avenue and stole more than a dozen cell phones, multiple laptops and several pairs of headphones. Police say surveillance video from a neighboring business shows a man  wearing a hooded sweatshirt and riding off on a longboard.

"It's an unfortunate way but it's reality, people needing money and that's the only way they know how to do it some people. It's unfortunate my business is one of them and the other businesses, we don't want to see it happen," said Bryan Deepter, Store Owner.

Lastly on Saturday, officers say someone kicked in the back door of a home on Beech Street and took jewelry and an iPod. 

If you have any information about any of these burglaries, you can call Crime Stoppers at 586-TIPS or 1-800-222-TIPS.
