WASHINGTON COUNTY, Pa. —

Authorities are investigating after three Washington County businesses were broken into and had items stolen overnight.

According to police, Krency’s Bakery, Jimmy’s Saloon and Shorty’s Hot Dog Shop were all broken into late Thursday night or early Friday morning.

When police arrived at the Krency’s Bakery on Jefferson Avenue Friday to investigate they found an apparent foot mark on the back door, which was open.

Police said they found coins scattered throughout the building and noticed the cash register was missing.

Investigators said the cash register was found in a dumpster nearby. Overall, $150-$200 was reported stolen.

According to police, the back door was also kicked in at Jimmy’s Saloon on Oregon Street. The cash register and safe, as well as alcohol, were reported stolen.

A short time later, detectives discovered the safe in a creek behind the bar. Detectives also discovered a footprint near the back door that matched a footprint at the other two businesses.

Authorities said the suspect is described as a white male standing about 5 feet 9 inches tall with a stocky build. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black jeans and black shoes.

Anyone with information on the three crimes is asked to contact police.
