PEORIA (25 News Now) - Peoria Police are investigating burglaries overnight after police say juveniles fled from a traffic stop at a high rate of speed.

Peoria Police spokesperson Semone Roth says that at 3:42 a.m. Wednesday, officers patrolling the area of Prospect and McClure observed a group of juveniles in a stolen vehicle, which then fled during that traffic stop.

A short time later, the owners of a business in the 3600 block of North Prospect reported a burglary where an undetermined amount of cash was taken from behind the counter.

Other businesses in the area were checked by police - when a business in the 3500 block of North Prospect was discovered to have broken widnows.

Roth says entry to that business was not made.

Police are investigating.
