WATCH: Calgary police are on the hunt for thieves now believed to have broken into more than 40 businesses in the span of a week. Global’s Gary Bobrovitz reports.

CALGARY – Police are hunting for suspects after more than 40 break-and-enters in northeast Calgary over the past week.

The most recent incidents happened on Monday between midnight and 1 a.m.

Police said thieves targeted at least nine businesses located along Westwinds Drive N.E., Sunridge Boulevard N.E., Castleridge Boulevard N.E. and 32 Avenue N.E.

Investigators believe all of the incidents are likely connected and could also be linked to a rash of break-and-enters over the past few days, including four along Falconridge Boulevard N.E. last Thursday.

It’s unknown what, if anything, was taken from the businesses.

Police are in the process of reviewing CCTV surveillance footage captured by security cameras.
