DILLINGHAM:  A string of overnight burglaries is prompting many in Dillingham to lock their doors tonight.

"Please don't try to brake-in / steal fuel at my house! Video & guns protect my house! Understand!" said one person in a posting discussing the burglaries on Facebook.

As of Thursday afternoon, the Dillingham police said that two suspects have been identified, many of the stolen items recovered, but no arrests had yet been made.

The Bristol Inn Hotel was the first to call the police. A little after 4:00am Thursday, an employee reported that someone was trying to break into the Bayside Diner. The suspect, or suspects, were gone by the time police arrived. Surveillance video provided no leads.

Later, a white flatbed truck owned by Delta Western was reported stolen from the Dillingham Hotel. It was later recovered near HUD housing.

As the work day started, two more businesses called the police to report overnight burglaries. The Teddy's Convenience store on Lake Road and Stelling's Automotive on Wood River Road had both been broken into and were missing money.

The police believe all of the burglaries are related. Two suspects have been identified and were interviewed by police Thursday.
