The burglar breaks in during the night, usually through a glass door, and targets the businesses' cash registers and safes. 

The suspect hits multiple businesses in the same night. He does not hit the same business twice. 

The burglar has used a Chevy Colorado and a Nissan Altima during the thefts. He wore hoodies, sweatpants and sneakers.
