MCMINNVILLE, Ore. -- Police need help tracking down at least two men suspected in a string of burglaries in McMinnville.

A total of eight businesses and one school have been hit since May 3. All the burglaries happened late at night or early in the morning.

Sometime late Thursday or early Friday, the thieves hit another office complex at 2200 W Second Street, taking numerous items and two government vehicles. 

Surveillance video showed the burglars had bandanas covering their faces and they wore gloves.

Brian Bailey and his wife have owned "Incahoots plants, flowers and gifts" for more than 22 years. Over the weekend, the suspects busted through his side door, stole money and shattered merchandise.
 
"They kind of went through all the cabinets and pretty much everything in the building," Bailey said. "It's pretty sad that's the [biggest] thing. Just all the damage to all the businesses and the loss of the money, too." 

On the same day his store was broken into, burglars also broke into "The Garden Path, just three blocks away.
 
"I hope they find them and do something good with them. You know, you don't wish badly for anybody but you hope they catch them and get things returned," Bailey said.

State Information Officer for the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service Sara Magenheimer said no sensitive information was stolen during the break in of their government office.

The stolen vehicles were described as a dark blue 2008 Dodge Ram with Oregon plate E227114, and a white 2009 Jeep Patriot with a Federal license plate A349713. 

Anyone with any information was asked to call police at (503) 560-6055.
