Smithfield Police have stepped up patrols following two break-ins at the same business 24 hours apartment.
Just before midnight Thursday, thieves broke into Brightleaf Flea Market at 2320 South Brightleaf Boulevard taking items from vendors booths inside. A similar break-in was reported Wednesday night at the flea market. Items were taken from at least one vendor.
Police Captain R. Sheppard said the two break-ins appear to be connected. Both burglaries were captured on security cameras located at the business. Police have not released images from the security camera video.
