    Police in Beverly Hills are searching for burglars who smashed windows and glass doors of eight businesses, making off with cash, police said on Sunday.

    The burglaries happened at 4:30 a.m. near Olympic Boulevard and Oakhurst Drive, said Beverly Hills police Sgt. Max Subin.

    About a mile away, someone broke into two businesses in the 8600 block of Wilshire Boulevard, said Subin, who added that the burglars took only cash from the businesses.

    "They showed some level of sophistication to break in all those businesses in one area," Subin told City News Service.

    Among the businesses broken into were a bakery, a shoe repair and flower shop, police said.

    Business owners were estimating their losses, Subin said. Police released surveillance video from one of the cases, which you can see below.
