In the third instance investigators believe he forced open the front door of omega tobacco and ripped off more tobacco products.

Two of the break-ins were reported Wednesday morning and the other was reported Sunday.

"On all three of these circumstances, instances that have occurred it's been officers responding to alarms that have been sounding at the businesses. Upon arriving they're discovering there has been some breach at the front entrances," Sgt. Darren Altermatt of the Tulare Police Department said.
