SHERMAN -- Police in Sherman are investigating if two burglaries that happened Monday night are related. Both businesses on Sam Rayburn, English Color and Able Aleman Roofing, are just yards from each other.
The companies found pad locks on their property cut and property stolen the following morning.
The manager at English Color says he found a storage unit open and three paint guns missing.
Lane Aleman says the lock on the fence surrounding his roofing company was also cut when he arrived at work Tuesday morning.
"The guys noticed when they got here the locks had been cut. We looked around and saw they took batteries, nail guns, and some other supplies."
Aleman says this isn't the first time his business has been burglarized. A $25,000 trailer was taken from the property a year ago.
