Windows smashed at Ypsilanti businesses; cash stolen from one

By Kyle Feldscher

Intruders broke a window to enter one Ypsilanti business on West Cross Street Monday and attempted to break into another, police said.

Someone broke into a business in the 700 block of West Cross Street between 6 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. Monday and took a small amount of cash, police said. The intruder or intruders got in through a window, they said.

Police said a business in the 500 block of West Cross Street had a window broken in a door to the building between 4 a.m. and 11 a.m. Monday during an attempted break-in. The business was not entered and nothing was taken.

Investigators declined to name the businesses, citing department policy. Police were not prepared Tuesday morning to say the incidents were definitely related.

The investigation into the break-in and the attempted break-in continues. Anyone with information on the incidents is encouraged to call the Ypsilanti police at 734-483-9510.

Seeing as how Eagle's Coney Island's glass is now replaced by cardboard I think that must be the 500 block business. I take it personally when they get robbed. They are such a hard working family!!!
