Jim Grant / Tahoe Daily Tribune Dick Yost, owner of Village Mountain Surf & Sports, holds a rock that was thrown through the front window of his business sometime early Tuesday morning.

Two South Lake Tahoe businesses were burglarized early Tuesday morning, and another business had a rock thrown through its window, authorities said.

The Yellow Submarine on Tallac Avenue and Baskin-Robbins 31 Flavors Ice Cream at 3330 Lake Tahoe Blvd. both were broken into, with windows smashed and money taken, said Lt. Marty Hale of the South Lake Tahoe Police Department.

The burglary at the sandwich shop was reported at 4:25 a.m. Tuesday, while employees of the ice-cream parlor reported the burglary at 7:55 a.m., Hale said.

A rock was thrown through the window at Village Mountain Surf and Sports at 3552 Lake Tahoe Blvd., Hale said. Nothing was missing from the store, but the owner, Dick Yost, said there was $1,000 in damage to the window.

Police also said there was at least one home burglary Monday, with a report made at 5:38 p.m. on Elwood Avenue. Details of the burglary were not immediately available.

Last week, police reported that someone shot out windows with a BB gun at the Kmart store in South Lake Tahoe on March 12, and a window was smashed and a small amount of money taken from Izzy’s Burger Spa, also on March 12.

Police are continuing the investigation to determine whether there is a link between these cases, Hale said.
