Police are looking for a person they believe broke into six businesses early Monday in East Grand Forks, according to Detective Tony Hart.

East Grand Forks police responded to a report of a burglary at 4:35 a.m. Monday at Anytime Fitness, but found that the nearby Holiday gas station, Cherry Berry and State Farm Insurance office also had been broken into in the shared building at 1010 Central Ave. N.E., a news release said.
The suspect stole cash and packs of cigarettes and caused a "significant amount of damage," the release said.

At 5:37 a.m., police received another burglary report at Northdale Oil, 210 Gateway Drive N.E., and when officers got there, they found that the adjoining Subway also has been broken into. Nothing was missing at these businesses, "but a significant amount of damage was done," the release said.

Damage came from the suspect breaking into the businesses and some tampering with property inside the businesses, Hart said.

Evidence was collected at both scenes, in addition to surveillance video from Holiday and Anytime Fitness.
