Leonard, ND (WDAY TV) - Cass County authorities call a string of burglaries rare because they only happen in small towns every couple years.

As we told first told you, six businesses, including these three in Leonard, have been targeted the past two nights. The suspects, believed to be young males, are looking to steal money or small items.

In most cases, they left behind little evidence or were scared off by alarms. Authorities believe the thieves will hit other communities before Christmas, just like in past incidents.

“This is normally the time throughout the whole state that burglaries happen. I think the cold has something to do with it. Obviously not so much in our county because we don't change our patrol practices just because of the weather.”

If you see anything suspicious, you are asked to call police.
