The Wentzville Napa Auto Parts store is the latest downtown business to be hit in a series of burglaries that seem to be targeting the area.
The Wentzville Police Department issued a press release Oct. 29 that said that the Napa store was burglarized at 5 a.m. and is the fourth downtown business to be hit since October 1.
The burglaries at the other three businesses—Wheel Sports Bike Shop, Ehll’s Western Auto, and Chic Lumber—had similar methods of entry, with the intended objective believed to be cash in each incident.
Major Paul West of the Wentzville Police Department confirmed to Patch that small amounts of cash were taken in each burglary, and nothing more.
The Wentzville Downtown Business Association has offered a $500 reward for specific information that leads to a successful arrest and prosecution of the person or persons responsible. Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to contact the Wentzville Police at 636-327-5105.
