Sheriff's department detectives are investigating a pair of burglaries, discovered early Wednesday at two Manatee County Starbucks shops in Manatee County.

One of the shops (7386 52nd Place E., Bradenton) was still closed Wednesday afternoon. A second shop along University Parkway reopened its drive-thru window at 5 p.m. Wednesday, but the lobby was expected to be closed until Thursday morning.

Managers arriving to open the shops around 5 a.m. Wednesday discovered the interiors burglarized and ransacked. Manatee County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Randy Warren said detectives are working the case and trying to develop a suspect.

“There’s not much we can get into at the moment,” he said. “Both stores have similar types of damages.”

Warren said stand-alone Starbucks locations in Tampa have had similar burglaries recently.

The value of loss and damage is unknown at this time.
