VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Valdosta Police are trying to figure out who burglarized three businesses over the weekend.

The first burglary happened on Friday night at Bennett Motors. The burglary was reported Saturday morning. La Jalisco Mexican Restaurant and Western Auto were both burglarized Saturday night while the businesses were closed. The burglaries were reported Sunday morning. 

A number of bottles of soda were stolen from a storeroom at La Jalisco, three weed eaters were stolen from Western Auto and two cars were stolen from the garage at Bennett Motors.

"Saturday morning, officers got a call from Bennett Motors there on North Ashley Street," said Lt. Aaron Kirk with the Valdosta Police Department.

"Apparently someone had gone through a window and stole two automobiles out of the garage...one was a 1999 green Dodge Ram pick up truck extended cab, the other vehicle was a black 2006 Toyota Camry four door," continued Kirk.

Kirk added that at this point, police do not believe the burglaries are connected.

Anyone with information related to these burglaries is asked to call the Valdosta Police Department at 229-242-2606.
