Morrison Police are investigating a Thursday burglary at the town's Dollar General store that may be connected to other Dollar General burglaries in Port Byron and in Fulton.

According to a news release, at least two subjects entered the Morrison Dollar General at about 4:45 p.m. on Thursday. While one suspect distracted employees, the other entered the break room, stole employees' wallets and left the store, the news release states.

The employees' stolen credit cards have been used in businesses in Clinton, and possibly in the Quad-Cities, according to the release.

The other Dollar General store burglaries took place in Fulton on Dec. 31, and in Port Byron on Thursday, Jan. 3.

Police are asking anyone who has information about the burglaries to contact the Morrison Police Department at (815) 772-7659, your city's police department or Whiteside County Crime Stoppers at (815) 625-7867.
