GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Police in Grand Rapids are investigating after an auto business and a cell phone store, both located on Plainfield Avenue, were broken into overnight. 

According to Grand Rapids Police, Bob's Transmission, located at 3220 Plainfield Ave NE, and the Boost Mobile store located just a half a mile away, were broken into around 4 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 27.

GRPD was assisted by the Kent County Sheriff's Office. Police said a suspect vehicle drove off from deputies at the scene after the break-ins. 

Police eventually recovered the vehicle at College Avenue and Washington St. SE, and believe it was used in several break-ins in Wyoming. Officers determined it was stolen. 

A K-9 unit was called to College and Washington to try and track down the suspects, but it was unsuccessful. Police said they believe three male suspects were involved in Thursday's break-ins. 

The Boost store had merchandise taken, but at this time, it appears nothing was taken from Bob's.

Both incidents are still under investigation.
