Police investigate three burglaries in Letcher County community

State police are investigating the burglaries of three businesses in the Isom community of Letcher County.

Breedings Plumbing and Electrical Supply was burglarized when someone apparently threw a rock through the front door glass, went inside and stole three Husqvarna chain saws. State police learned of that incident at 6 a.m. Tuesday.

A few hours later, they received a call regarding a burglary at Johnny Wheels, where an employee coming in to work noticed that a lock had been cut from a storage trailer and four large truck tires were taken from inside.

The same employee also noticed that the front door glass at Diana's Bows and Fashions next door had been broken as well. A large amount of clothing was taken, state police said.

The three burglaries are believed to be connected. Anyone with information is asked to call state police at 1-800-222-5555.
