(KWAT – Watertown, SD) Watertown police are looking for the suspects involved in recent burglaries that happened three days apart, and within a block of one another.
Detective Sergeant Trevor Barthel says the first break-in occurred January 24th at Smokes 4 Less at 107 9th Avenue Southeast. That’s where the suspects gained forced entry by breaking a window and stealing $1,200 of merchandise.
Three days later, on January 27th, the suspects broke a window to get inside America’s Pure CBD at 223 9th Avenue Southeast. In that burglary, the suspects took about $10,000 worth of merchandise, but were observed on surveillance video.
Detectives are seeking assistance from the public in identifying the two individuals from the video, and are offering a “substantial reward” that leads to the arrests of the suspects.
Anyone with information is asked to call Watertown police at 605-882-5238.
