Businesses hit by rash of burglaries

Bremerton is facing a rash of burglaries occurring at small businesses since Sept. 14.

The most recent incidents took place Sept. 22 at Fiesta Mexican Restaurant on Sixth Street and Hansen’s Tavern on Sylvan Way and were reported around mid-morning.

Sheridan Village businesses were the target Sept. 17. Rob’s Fish & Chips, Foley’s Pizza and MK Ballet Studio were each ransacked and had items of property taken, according to police reports.

The first pair of burglaries occurred at Burger’s Garden Center on Adele Avenue and CJ’s Nails on Sixth. Police said each incident has taken place in the late night or early evening hours. Burglars have entered through rooftops or windows in each case.

Handy Andy’s convenient store on state Route 303 outside the city limits also has been burglarized during this time period.

At Foley’s, owner Mona Foley lost karaoke equipment that had been popular with customers looking for karaoke in a family-friendly atmosphere.

“They stole all my karaoke stuff but some was recovered ... in a dumpster behind the building but not all of it,” Foley said. “They trashed my place, throwing everything around.”
