NORTH HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (KABC) --Authorities are investigating a string of burglaries at Subway restaurants in the San Fernando Valley.
At least one suspect was caught on surveillance video committing the crimes. In the video, the suspect smashes the window, steals the tip jar, and on one occasion, steals an empty cash register.
Nine restaurants have been hit since Dec. 13, authorities said. Two of the burglaries happened Friday night in North Hollywood. Authorities are not sure if there are multiple suspects involved in the burglaries.
Joel Montero, who owns an Ameci's Pizza two doors down from one of the burglarized Subway locations, said it is a scary situation.
The burglaries have happened after hours between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.
The majority of the crimes occur on the Sherman Way corridor, stretching from North Hollywood to Topanga.
