Money stolen from downtown businessesPublished 11:02am Thursday, September 12, 2013
Unknown people stole money from two businesses in downtown Fergus Falls, according to police.
About $600 was taken from the till and safe sometime Tuesday night from Hair N Beyond where thieves forced open a back door, in the 100 block of North Cascade Street. The safe had been left unlocked.
A Center for the Arts also reported a theft overnight Tuesday.
About $458 was stolen from a safe. The suspects did not force entry into the building.
They reportedly moved the safe to a different part of the building and used tools there to break into the safe.
It is uncertain whether the thefts are connected.
