Businesses in Lexington's Chevy Chase area have come together to support one another after a string of burglaries.

The Morris Bookstore was broken into for the second time in a week on Thursday.

Police said other stores in the area had also been hit, including Hair Razors, Stuartos Olive Oil, A Cup Of Commonwealth, and The Lexington Visual Collective.

The owner of Morris Bookstore said neighborhood support had been strong with people showing up first thing Friday morning to purchase a book.

Owner Wyn Morris said, "A community like Lexington is unique.  It bands together when we need them, they're there for us, and vice-versa."

The nearby A Cup Of Commonwealth coffeehouse was also recently broken-in to.

They are offering the public a free coffee for shopping at any of the targeted businesses.

Police said it's too soon to tell if the break-ins are connected.
