Halifax Regional Police are investigating after two businesses in downtown Halifax were broken into early Tuesday morning. 

The first was the Boston Pizza on Granville St. Police say someone smashed the glass door to get in just before 3 a.m., and a cash register along with some other items were taken from the restaurant.

About 10 minutes later, police say an alarm went off at the Creamy Rainbow cafe on Dresden Row. Again police say someone broke through a glass door panel and stole a cash register. 

Police believe the same person is responsible for both. A suspect is described as a white man, about 30 years old with short brown hair. He was wearing glasses, a black jacket with a white hoodie underneath, black pants and black sneakers with white soles.

Anyone with information is asked to get in touch with police.
