Maryland State Police and the Washington County Sheriff's Department are seeking the public's help in finding the person or people responsible for a series of recent commercial building break-ins in the county.
Police believe an attempted break-in at a Clear Spring restaurant, a break-in at a Clear Spring diner and a break-in at a Hagers- town salon over the past couple of days might be linked.
State Police Sgt. Dave Bowers said a broken window was found at Windy Hill Restaurant, 13120 Clear Spring Road, at about 7 a.m. Wednesday.
"Nothing inside appeared to be disturbed," he said.
Bowers said the break-in occurred between 7:15 p.m. Tuesday and 7 a.m. Wednesday.
He said a nearby Exxon was vandalized the day before.
Sheriff's Department Investigator Greg Alton said deputies found a broken window at Blue Eyes Salon, 18129A W. Oak Ridge Drive, at 12:50 a.m. Wednesday, after responding to the business for an alarm.
