Provincial police are asking for the public's help solving a rash of break-ins at Muskoka businesses.

According to the OPP, suspects broke a window at a Huntsville business on West Road on Friday.

Police say the suspects stole an undisclosed amount of money.

They say another break-in occurred between 2 p.m. on Friday and 7 a.m. on Saturday, this time at a Bay Street business in Lake of Bays.

Police say thieves broke a glass door and made off with items and cash.

On Sunday, around 12:40 a.m., police say a third break-in happened at a business on Lindgren Road West in Huntsville, where again, suspects broke a window to get inside and left with various items.

Police say security cameras captured images of two suspects involved in the Lindgren Road West break-in.

One suspect wore a hoodie with a light-coloured top and black bottom, baggy grey jogging pants and black VANS-style shoes.

The other suspect wore a dark hoodie with a red shirt underneath, black pants and blue sneakers.

It's unclear if the same suspects are involved in all three break-ins.

Police urge anyone with information on the break-ins and thefts to contact the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers to remain anonymous. Top Stories

These Picassos prompted a gender war at an Australian gallery. Now the curator says she painted them

They were billed as artworks by Pablo Picasso, paintings so valuable that an Australian art museum’s decision to display them in an exhibition restricted to women visitors provoked a gender discrimination lawsuit. The paintings again prompted international headlines when the gallery re-hung them in a women’s restroom to sidestep a legal ruling that said men could not be barred from viewing them.
