Police Friday are investigating a series of commercial burglaries committed in Burbank’s Magnolia Park District.

Officers from the Burbank Police Department received a call of an alarm activation at approximately 2:40 a.m. in the 3200 block of West Magnolia Boulevard, said Lt. Derek Green.

At least four small businesses were burglarized, according to CBS 2.

Green said the robberies do not appear to be part of the rash of strong-arm, takeover-style or “smash and grab” robberies that have plagued Los Angeles and San Francisco in recent weeks.

“We’re still in the early stages of our investigation, but we think these most likely were commercial burglaries and these stores were targeted because they were closed,” he told City News Service.

No suspect information was available.
