Business break-ins overnight

The Tyngsborough Police Department is investigating two overnight break-ins of businesses that occurred sometime around 3am.  Tyngsborough Officers were in the area investigating a noise complaint when they found that CountryView Diner was broken into via entry through a rear window to the business.  The officers also found that Sullivan farms Ice Cream was broken into via a window as well.   Some damage was done inside the diner however it does not appear that money was taken.  A cash register was found in the rear of Sullivan Farms, it appears that the perpetrators were scared off.  A small black safe was stolen from Sullivans as well, an amount of stolen coins were recovered in the rear of the business (amount being withheld at this time).

An investigation has revealed that there were two perpetrators, likely thin male subjects who were able to pull themselves up to a small window and crawl through.

UPDATE: The two people depicted in this video below  are NOT considered suspects but people that the police department would like to speak to as they may have information regarding the break-ins.
