Two businesses located at the Woodland Mall were entered after hours last week.
Bowling Green police responded to Alehouse Grill Thursday at 9:35 a.m. on a report that the bar area had been burglarized. The door to the patio was unlocked as was the sliding door to the mall.
Both lottery machines had been forced open and a laptop was missing. Several pool balls had been thrown into a juke box and the petty cash box was missing, according to the Bowling Green Police Division report.
An employee handed over keys that were found in the parking lot and another told police he saw a man with a hoodie in a black car parked near the grill around 7:30 a.m. Ten minutes later, the vehicle was gone.
At 10 a.m., while still at the grill, officers were notified of a break-in at B Family Restaurant. An employee told police when he arrived that morning, he found the cash register on the floor with some keys lying nearby. The cash register did not appear damaged and the keys did not belong to the business, according to the report.
