Portland Police Investigate Rash of Commercial Burgalries


Portland Police want to alert the public to a rash of commercial burglaries in Portland. While there are similarities in the crimes, it is too early to determine if they are being perpetrated by the same individual(s) according to a press release issued late this afternoon.

Detectives are actively pursuing investigate leads and are working with other greater Portland departments that have similar crimes in their cities.  Patrol officers are increasing their proactive patrols throughout the city and we are asking that business owners look their doors and windows.  This rash of commercial burglaries occurred between August 23, 2019 and October 20, 2019.  If you have any information that could help, please call (207) 874-8575.
