Grapevine police are investigating a series of burglaries in the past month in which entry was gained by throwing rocks or a brick through windows.
In one incident, video surveillance shows a man entering a store after a landscaping brick crashed through a window. It happened at 2:24 a.m. March 21 in the 2100 block of West Northwest Highway.
“From the surveillance video, it appears the suspect is possibly looking for cash,” police said in a news release.
But, when he couldn’t find money, the man scooped up about 30 pair of girls jeans.

“The suspect was in the store for approximately three minutes,” police said.
Similar incidents happened March 6 or 7 in the 1500 block of West Texas 114, where a computer and a checkbook were stolen; March 9 in the 2600 block of William D. Tate Ave. where a TV was stolen; and April 6 in the 2600 block of Ira E. Woods Ave. where a cash register, laptop computer and a nail drill were stolen.
The man in the March 21 video appears to be 40 to 45, about 6-feet-2 and about 200 pounds. He wore glasses, a leather jacket, jeans and dark shoes.
