CHICO, Calif. -

Police in Chico are looking for a suspect who broke into three cars early Wednesday.  It is the latest in a string of recent car burglaries at Chico's downtown parking garage on Salem Street between 3rd and 4th streets.

The three cars, a Ford and two BMWs were broken into early Wednesday while parked in spaces designated for the neighboring Hotel Diamond.

Police responded and spotted a possible suspect running down 4th Street around 3:30 a.m.

Chico business owners have been concerned lately due to the growing number of car burglaries in the parking garage.  They fear it will keep customers away from the downtown area.
