A couple of computers are stolen from two Salina businesses.
According to Lt. Scott Siemsen, police are investigating two burglaries that authorities say are likely connected.
Someone smashed a back window at the Jeff Wells' American Family Insurance building at 440 S. Ohio, sometime between Sunday evening at 6pm and Monday morning at 7:35am.
Once inside, police say one main computer server tower was taken as well as a laptop with docking station.
Also stolen was an Oakley brand pair of sunglasses plus a white/gold commemerative ring valued at $3,500.
Total loss and damage is estimated at $6,700. Siemsen tells KSAL News that not customer information was compromised.
Police say nearby during the same timeframe - someone forced open a backdoor at Heartland Adjustments, 801 E. Prescott.
Burglars removed the hardrive out of one computer and stole an HP tower along with a Sea Gate external drive, plus four digital cameras.
Total loss and damage in this case is listed at $2,700.
