The two burglaries occurred around 5:30 a.m. Valley Equipment Rental, 2915 Highway 66, and El Paraiso Restaurant, 545 Clover Lane, both had property missing from inside. Police say the vehicle used caused significant damage to both businesses. It was left at the restaurant, and has since been impounded by Ashland police.
The type of car used and what specific property is missing were not immediately available.
