COLUMBUS, Ind. — A string of business burglaries along Interstate 65 in southern Indiana, including Columbus, Seymour and Edinburgh, were likely committed by the same person or people, according to multiple police agencies.
Pieces of or entire cash registers taken from stores and restaurants have been recovered near seven different interchanges from Sellersburg to Columbus, police said.
At 3:50 a.m. Sunday, Columbus police responded to an alarm at the Lincoln Square Restaurant, 2315 W. Jonathan Moore Pike. The owner, who was waiting in the parking lot, told officers a burglar forced his way into the front door and took a cash register that contained an undisclosed amount of money, according to Columbus Police Lt. Matt Myers.
The register was recovered late Sunday morning near the northbound rest park at the 71-mile marker, Myers said.
