>> Police say man was shot at Dayton business before he drove to gas station
Dayton police detectives are investigating many more business break-ins that happened Tuesday morning, including those at Domino’s and Dollar General on North Main Street and JJ Fish & Chicken on Salem Avenue.
Montgomery County Sheriff’s detectives took similar reports at a Lee’s Chicken in Harrison Twp. that also had its drive-through window broken.
Investigators are not saying whether the crimes are connected, but there are similarities: the restaurants had their drive-through windows smashed as the entry point; in most cases the culprit tried to access the safe; and in several cases the culprit had a backpack and tried to cover his face with what appears to be a white T-shirt.

Customers of the businesses targeted said crime hurts the businesses, and could come back on those who patronize them.
“It’s troubling,” said Kirisha Gibson. “It’s going to affect us all, really. They might have to raise prices.”
