Police in Rock Hill are trying to determine if three glass-smash restaurant break-ins Friday on North Cherry Road are connected.
In at least two of the incidents, a rock was used to smash glass doors to gain entry to the restaurants, police reports show.
Detectives are looking at all three cases to determine if they are linked, said Capt. Mark Bollinger, spokesman for the Rock Hill Police Department.
The first incident happened at Subway in the 2300 block of Cherry Road around 1:30 a.m. Friday. Police found the front door had been smashed in with a large rock, reports show.

Surveillance video seen by police showed two men enter the store with hoodies pulled over their faces; the cash register was knocked to the floor before both men fled.
Police furnished to The Herald still photos taken from the surveillance video, but the full video was not available.
At around 5:30 a.m. Friday, police responded to a nearby Little Caesar’s pizza, where the glass was smashed. Then just a few minutes later, police at the Little Caesar’s responded to the CiCi’s Pizza nearby, where the front glass door was shattered by a rock.
Officers found two cash registers missing and about $300 stolen. Shortly afterward, police recovered both cash registers behind a Target store off Dave Lyle Boulevard.
No arrests have been made.
