SAN DIEGO – Police are trying to determine why a burglar who broke into a cell phone store also caused serious damage to an adjacent Planned Parenthood center overnight Tuesday in the Valencia Park neighborhood.
The burglar broke into the Cricket Wireless store at 202 Euclid Ave. at around 1 a.m. A 911 caller reported seeing the male suspect fleeing the store with boxes of phones.
Responding San Diego police found the windows in the back room of the Cricket store had been smashed out. They also found that a wall and window at the adjacent Planned Parenthood center had also been damaged. It appeared the suspect had gotten into the Cricket store through the Planned Parenthood center, police said.
There was no one in either business at the time. There was no immediate description of the suspect. The exact extent of the damage was not disclosed.
Planned Parenthood was scheduled to open at 8:30 a.m. There was no word on whether it would open as usual.
