Police are searching for three men suspected in smash-and-grab burglaries at four pizza parlors in north and southeast Houston during the last several weeks.
The thieves targeted Little Ceasars Pizza restaurants that were closed, according to the Houston Police Department. In each case, they shattered the glass front door with a sledgehammer and then stole cash from the safes. In one burglary, they broke into the eatery's safe with a circular handsaw.
Police said the most recent heist happened on April 7 at 9855 Blackhawk Blvd.
The other burglaries occurred April 5 at 139 Little York Road; March 27 at 212 E. Crosstimbers; and March 13 at 16282 Imperial Valley Drive.
The burglars wore dark clothes and gloves, and they also wore bandanas on their faces.
