WILLISTON, Vt. -
A thief, or maybe thieves remain at large tonight. Five businesses in Williston were broken into over the weekend, and police believe they may all be connected.
Unfortunately there's no security footage but police are hoping you saw or heard something.
Fortunately the crook didn't get away with anything at one of the stops, but at the others, lap tops, cameras and even the company car was stolen.
"A lot of drawers open, a lot of things that were in one place ended up in another, the lights were all on, the door had been jimmied open," Rebecca Ryan of the American Lung Association said.
That's what Monday morning looked like for five businesses in Williston. Three on Hurricane Lane, the American Lung Association, the Division of Fire Safety and APS Healthcare. Just down the road, the architectural firm Morris Switzer and Allen's Pools and Spas. Police believe all five were hit by the same person or group.
"The strongest motive that we can see at this time can be traced back to drug use," Detective Sergeant Bart Chamberlain said, of the Williston Police Department.
"It feels a little sad and desperate," Ryan said.
In all of the break ins, doors or windows were pried open, footprints were left on blueprints, and a screen was ripped open.
"It's very eerie," Janet Carlson said of Morris Switzer.
An unmarked company car, flip cameras, laptops, a DVD player, a bottle of patron tequila, two hundred dollars in cash, even change was stolen.
"I might have had three quarters in my drawer; it literally was that bad," Det. Sgt. Chamberlain said.
Police say the break ins could have happened any time between Friday night and Sunday night because these are Monday through Friday businesses and during the weekend, it's pretty secluded and dark around in those areas.
"There isn't a lot of traffic so I think that leads to a sense of security that they're not going to be caught," Det. Sgt. Chamberlain said.
But police say cracking this crime is a top priority.
The unmarked Morris Switzer company car is a 2012, dark tan, Ford Edge with the license plate, FNG 500.
If you have any information, call Williston police, or crime stoppers.
