CEDAR CITY — Cedar City Police are seeking the public’s assistance regarding four weekend burglaries and one attempted burglary in which they currently have no leads.

Four of the incidents occurred early Saturday morning, Cedar City Police Lt. Jimmy Roden said. There was another one Sunday morning that bore a striking resemblance to the methods used in the Saturday morning incidents, Roden said, although he would not say definitively that they were connected.

“We collected evidence to support that these cases are most likely related,” Roden said.

The first incident occurred at 3:30 a.m. Saturday at the Frontier Homestead State Park Museum, according to an incident report issued Monday by the Cedar City Police Department.

The museum break-in was unsuccessful, Roden said, so it is listed as a criminal mischief event, but it was an attempt to break in that was done in the same manner as the successful ones that came later.

Three more burglaries were reported to Cedar City Police Saturday morning between 8:02 and 8:36 a.m. by A-1 Glass, Cedar City-Brian Head Tourism Bureau and Jackson Dry Cleaners. Another report came in Sunday morning from Century Equipment Company at 9:36 a.m. Each of the businesses burglarized are on the north end of Main Street.

There were items of value stolen from each of the buildings that were successfully broken into, Roden said.

As of today, Roden said, Cedar City Police have no suspects or information to lead them to one. Police are asking anyone who may have information to contact them at (435) 586-2956.
