Orange County Sheriff’s Office is searching for burglars responsible for a rash of break-ins in the Dr. Phillips area.

According to OCSO, deputies responded between 5 and 6 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 11, to several glass-break alarms in the shopping center at Dr. Phillips Boulevard and Sand Lake Road. Upon arrival, they found five businesses that had been burglarized, deputies said.

OCSO confirmed that the five burglaries were related, and the affected businesses are Shala Salon and Spa, Simply Gyros, AT&T on Sand Lake Road, Woof Gang Bakery and Spa, and Tammy’s Day Spa Nails. 

At the same time, OCSO also is investigating four burglaries related to each other in the general area of South Apopka Vineland Road. The affected businesses, according to deputies, are Rina Nails and Spa, Déjà Vu Salon, Elegant Nails and China 3. 

While all nine burglaries occurred in the 5 a.m. hour Sunday, OCSO doesn’t know if they are related. No suspects have been located.

“At this time, we are not able to confirm whether the Dr. Phillips burglaries are related to the South Apopka Vineland burglaries,” OCSO officials wrote in an email.
