String of Businesses Burglarized in San Jose

The San Jose Police Department is investigating a series of burglaries that occurred late Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning.

The first incident was reported at an Auto Zone in the 5500 block of Cottle Road. Less than an hour later, a second burglary was reported at the Auto Zone on Almaden Expressway and a third across the street at an O’Reilly Auto Parts at 1111 Branham Lane.

It is unknown what was taken from each location but it’s believed the stolen items could be worth up to tens of thousands of dollars.

Vape store Abyss Vapor Lounge, near Oakridge Mall, was also burglarized at about 2 a.m. Wednesday, police said.

Several men reportedly entered the shop with covered faces but were interrupted by the staff of the next door veterinary hospital before fleeing in a vehicle.

No injuries have been reported and no arrests have been made in connection to those.

A fifth burglary, that police say is not related to the others, occurred at Eastridge Liquors at 1855 Tully Rd around 3 a.m. 

The store's security company reportedly responded to dispatch of an alarm and arriving guards spotted a man inside.

Upon arrival, the San Jose Police Department took the man into custody.
