    At least three medical offices were broken into overnight Thursday but it was not yet clear if anything was taken, according to the San Diego Police Department.

    The first break-in was reported at a plastic surgery office on 2nd Street in Bankers Hill at about 2 a.m., SDPD said.

    The office had damage to at least one window, which had been boarded up with a wood panel. The facility's doctor told NBC 7 he believes that is how the suspect(s) made their way into the office. 

    He said the office was broken into several times last year, prompting them to install security doors and a Cox security system. It was that system that notified them of the burglary on Thursday. 

    Some cash was taken and police are investigating whether anything else was missing, according to the doctor. 

    About two hours later, a Kaiser Permanente pharmacy on Clairemont Mesa Boulevard in Kearny Mesa was broken into. 

    Within a half-hour, another break-in was reported at a pharmacy in Carmel Valley. Inside the office, a glass panel that separated the store from the perscription medication was smashed, footage of the scene showed. 

    There was no immediate word on damage or loss in the latter two incidents. 

    Police were investigating if the break-ins were connected. No suspect description was available. 

    No other information was available.
