Police will not say if there is any connection between two smash and grab burglaries that were discovered this morning.

The first occurred at 4:30 AM when a group of thieves drove a pickup truck through the front of Sam Light Loans at the corner of Olive and Jefferson. The criminals left the truck in the building, then drove off in another pickup.

Just over an hour later a similar truck drove through the front of a north county Stop and Shop. Authorities said items were taken from the store. The truck used in that crime was found several blocks away and had been reported stolen.

These are the latest two smash-and-grab crimes reported in recent months.
