Three burglaries within an hour at two locations in Southwest Omaha certainly appear to be connected. Security cameras at two stores help lay out the suspects' methods but it's what was found in Council Bluffs that could help lead to an arrest.

The burglaries at 155th & Q Streets included a Nu-Trend dry cleaner and the Intertech Collision Center. The video shows two suspects using a pry-bar to get through the front door at Nu-Trend. The suspects then busted through some drywall to get into Intertech.

According to the timestamp on the video these burglaries came minutes before the Pettit's Pastries location at 156th & Pacific was broken into.

The safe was stolen from that store after the suspects, using a pry-bar that looks familiar, popped it from the bolts holding it in the floor. Paperwork that was inside of that safe was discovered in Council Bluffs in the days after the burglary.

Watch the video to see if you can help police. If you know anything call 402-444-7867 and remember, a tip could lead to a reward.
