Two Grand Forks businesses were broken into overnight.

The burglaries happened at the Budget Inn Express and Rumors bar.

Police say they're determining if they're related, but say the Rumors break-in could be connected to other bar burglaries earlier this year.

Police were called to the Budget Inn Express for a burglary that had just happened a little before 3:30 this morning.

Officers say the hotel manager heard a loud noise downstairs and saw that the front door was kicked in.

The second burglary happened a little after 4:30am.

Police were called to Rumors Bar in the Grand Cities mall.

They say the burglar got into the mall through an unlocked door and broke open the inside door to the bar.

Officers say the gaming areas in the bar have some damage to them, but they don't think anything is missing.

Police say they think this break in could be related to a string of burglaries where charitable gaming money was taken in Grand Forks and Devils Lake.
