A $1,000 reward is being offered by three Berne businesses for information about burglaries which occurred at their businesses overnight Monday.
The firms are State Farm Insurance, Sport Form, and Bixler Insurance.
Small amounts of money were taken from the State Farm and Sport Form sites and there was an unsuccessful attempt to enter a safe at the Bixler site, but nothing was stolen.
Officials said considerable property damage was done at all three places as the illegal entries were made. The front door and door frame at State Farm Insurance were destroyed and two doors were kicked in at Bixler Insurance.
Those with information about the crimes can call the Berne Police Department, 589-2169, or may make an anonymous call to Crime Stoppers, 692-2882. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards to tipsters whose information solves crimes.
