Thieves strike Hutchinson churches
HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) Thieves are again targeting Hutchinson churches.
Police say a break-in Wednesday night at the McGee Chapel, Church of God in Christ, was the third church break-in in less than a week. Some petty cash was stolen but no significant damage was reported.
That burglary came a day after a break-in at First Presbyterian Church, where a maintenance worker surprised a young male burglar and chased him out of the church. Nothing was stolen. And sometime during the weekend, the First Christian Church was vandalized and about $60 was stolen.
This summer, more than a dozen church break-ins were reported in Hutchinson. Four people were arrested in those crimes.
The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/THDsSG ) police have not found any evidence linking any of the previous suspects to the recent break-ins.
