Police investigating burglaries

Break-ins at Corbin McDonald’s, Subway happened after midnight Thursday


By Becky Killian / Editor

Police could be close to making arrests in connection with the Thursday burglaries of two restaurants, according to Corbin Police Detective Rusty Hedrick.

The burglaries happened between midnight and 3 a.m. at the Subway located in Forest Hills Shopping Center and at the McDonald’s located along Master Street.

At Subway, police found pry marks on the back door where the burglars had forced the door open. They also found drag marks on the floor where the burglars dragged the restaurant’s 2 foot by 3 foot safe, which Hedrick said contained about $1,200 cash and loose coins. The burglars also took about $100 cash from the register.

That same night, it is believed the same burglars broke into the McDonald’s on Master Street by breaking a glass door with a hammer. They were unable to break into the safe, so they left without taking anything.

Both businesses were closed when the burglaries occurred.

The burglaries were reported by employees at both locations as they reported to work later that morning.

Police have videos from the two businesses which show two burglars at Subway and one in McDonalds. It is believed up to three people are responsible for the crimes. Hedrick said he continues to pursue leads in the case.

Anyone with information about the burglaries or the people responsible for them is asked to call the Corbin Police Department at 606-528-1122.
