Burglars target Am.F. businesses

AMERICAN FORK -- Burglaries at local businesses are increasing in this northern Utah County town.

More than $6,000 in computer equipment was stolen Tuesday night from Pentacour Resources, according to American Fork police. Someone kicked in the back door and left with two computers and other office equipment.Last weekend, four offices at a medical facility adjacent to the American Fork Hospital were broken into, and a few hundred dollars worth of medical equipment was taken.

Police officials are encouraging business owners to install an alarm system, lock doors and windows and hide valuables.
