A burglar broke into three stores on the other side of a Carmichael fire department early Wednesday morning.
The burglaries happened at All Seasons Cleaners, Classique Salon and Annette Skin Wax on Winding Way around 2 a.m.
Firefighters said they could hear the break-in and arrived to find the man running away.
When Sheriff’s Deputies arrived, they set up a perimeter in case the person was still in the area, but they were unable to find him.
Deputies said they had a good description of the man, but no name.
It’s unclear if anything is stolen at this time.
