The Tualatin burglary happened at 1:50 a.m. Monday at Jared Jewelers at Bridgeport Village. Tualatin Police report about $150,000 worth of items were taken. Less than three hours later that morning, thieves broke into the Macy's at Tanasboure. In all three cases, the burglars busted in through an external service entry, smashed cases and grabbed items. K-9 units were brought in to track down the suspects without success.
Investigators in all three cities are accepting tips on all three cases.
