In East Windsor, a bar and a convenience store were hit in the same plaza along Route five around 3 a-m. In South Windsor, police say the “Kwik Stop” convenience store on Sullivan Avenue was hit just before 3:30 a.m.
In Vernon, police say three suspects broke into the Subway sandwich shop on Hartford Turnpike and made off with cash and a safe. Surveillance video showed the three wearing hooded sweatshirts, masks and gloves. South Windsor police say Windsor and Bloomfield also reported similar crimes.
