JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A third Region 8 store found evidence of an attempted break-in through a wall at the business.

According to the incident report, owners of Al's Lock and Key and Look Once, Look Twice Flea Market found the covers on the breaker box and power supply box ripped off behind their stores on Tuesday.

Al's Lock and Key owner also noticed his metal door had been dented and damaged.

Police arrived later and found damage to the side of the brick building.

The report states the damage looks like it was made with a sledgehammer.

Police also found a hole in the ceiling of Al's Lock and Key.

Similar incidents happened at two Jonesboro pawnshops, Gee Street Pawn Shop and Totem Pole Pawn Shop.

Police said it is too early in the investigation to know if the three incidents are related or not.
