A rooftop burglar has hit three businesses this month in Springfield.

Targets have been a mini-mart, sports bar and bowling alley. An employee of Timber Bowl arrived at work Monday and found a hole in the ceiling. The cash register was damaged and lottery tickets stolen.

Police Sgt. John Umenhover told The Register-Guard rooftop burglaries are rare because of the amount of work involved.

Police are advising business owners to secure cash overnight until the rooftop burglar is caught.
