TULSA, OK -- A pair of unrelated overnight business burglaries are under investigation by Tulsa Police.

Some daring burglars get creative while breaking into a Tulsa business overnight.

Police officers were called to a "Checks Cashed" store at around 1:15 a.m. Tuesday.

A search of the building turned up a hole in the roof.

Police say the thieves dropped down into the store and took what they wanted. The alarm didn't sound, until they left.

Tulsa Police say they unlocked the front door and just walked right out.

There's no word yet on what was taken.

In an unrelated burglary case, police officers responded to a burglary at a Tulsa health store.

This burglary happened at the Smoothie King near 71st and Mingo a little after 3 a.m. Tuesday.

Tulsa Police say someone smashed in the glass door and went straight for the cash register. But officers say the cash drawer was empty.

Police say the only real damage to the business was the shattered door.
