NSW Police have begun investigations into a string of break and enters this week after a man broke into four separate city businesses on Wednesday morning.

Just before 3:30am on Wednesday, a man gained entry into a business on Harris Street, Pyrmont, allegedly breaking into the property before disconnecting the CCTV cameras, and a short time later stole a lockbox containing cash at a property on George Street, after kicking open the fire escape door to gain entry. He was seen to be leaving on a scooter with an unknown registration.

At about 5:15am, the man forced entry into a supermarket at Quay Street in Haymarket, stealing cash and cigarettes before leaving. He also tried to gain entry into a nearby property but was unsuccessful.
