Two Harbors was struck by a rash of attempted burglaries recently, with three locations hit in Oct. 5.

North Shore Pizza Cafe, at the intersection of Eighth Street and Seventh Avenue (Minnesota Highway 61), was among businesses that reported an attempted burglary to the Two Harbors Police Department when an employee found someone had attempted to pry open the front door.

Kevin Fransen, manager of Fransen Outdoor Equipment, just across Eighth Street from North Shore Pizza, said his shop wasn't hit and the store's cameras didn't capture any useful footage of the crimes.

Fransen also said THPD said the alley behind the Eighth Street businesses was particularly bad for break-ins.

THPD Chief Rick Hogenson issued the following statement in an email: "On Friday, Oct. 5, the Two Harbors Police Department responded to multiple reports of burglaries or attempted burglaries to some of our local businesses on or near Seventh Avenue. These investigations are active and ongoing. Anyone with information, surveillance video, still images or remembers seeing something suspicious on or around this date, is encouraged to call the Two Harbors Police Department at 218-834-5566."
