FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Police in Fort Collins are investigating at least eight smash-and-grab burglaries that occurred early Thursday morning.

Between the hours of 4 a.m. and 6 a.m., the suspect or suspects broke into four businesses in the 2600 block of South Timberline Road; three in the 900 block of East Harmony Road; and one business in the 100 block of East Boardwalk Drive.

Krazy Karl’s Pizza, Colorado Nutrition, Eileen’s Cookies, Cost Cutters, Dominic’s, Fiona’s, La Buena Vida, and Justine’s Pizza were targeted during the spree.
