KANNUR: Burglars broke into 17 shops near the municipal bus stand here in the early hours of Sunday.
The Town Police said the burglary attempts came to light only by the noon on Sunday.
Though the number of shops broke open by the burglars shocked the public and the police, it was found that the burglars decamped with only two computers and cash totalling Rs.3,500 from a shop selling electrical items.
The police said the burglars had initially tried to drill a hole on the wall of the shop, but apparently abandoned the move.
Instead, they broke open the shutters, the police said. Burglary attempts were made in other shops too, including 14 shops in a nearby building. Shutters of the shops, mostly wholesale shops, were found open.
However, no cash or goods were found missing from these shops, the police said.
Fingerprint and forensic experts examined the shops.
