Detectives Investigate String of Burglaries on South Coast

Authorities are investigating a string of burglaries that happened overnight on the South Coast.

Ventura County Sheriff's officials said burglars broke into businesses in Thousand Oaks between Friday night and early Saturday morning and stole cash.

"Money from registers, potentially cash drawers," Captain Ian Laughlin said. "But some of the locations had been ransacked, so typically that will take a little longer for the employees or management to figure out what specifically was taken.  So, I don't know if there are any specific items of value taken."

He said most of the burglaries took place near Thousand Oaks and Westlake boulevards at various restaurants and commercial businesses including Bevmo and Starbucks. Detectives are working to identify suspects.
