These burglaries include:

— Someone forcing his or her way through the rear door to Floyd's Barber Shop, 107 West Sale, Tuscola, either the evening of Aug. 30 or the morning of Aug. 31. Money, including cash and checks, was stolen, much of it inside a bank deposit bag. The bag was also stolen, as was a Toshiba laptop.

— Between 6:30 p.m. Monday and 5:45 a.m. Tuesday, someone broke into to the Newman Car Wash, 2560 East U.S. 36, Newman. He or she opened the coin and bill acceptor machine and stole cash, including coins.

— Someone broke into four separate farm sheds in Arcola, Sargent and Murdock townships either Monday or Tuesday. In each case, a side or rear door was forced open. Stolen from the sheds were electrical cords, copper pipes from propane tanks and copper wire from grain bins. Also stolen were items such as welders, a table saw and batteries.
