Thieves strike multiple Worth County churches

Officials say they will have more information Monday

Multiple Worth County churches had their air condition units ripped apart over night.

Thieves stole the copper wiring from multiple units. Investigators wouldn't comment on the burglaries, they would only confirm that four churches were vandalized. And at some of those churches, multiple units were destroyed.

Chapel Hill Baptist Church was one of the churches vandalized. Pastor Larry James says he thinks the thieves planned it all out and had maybe even done it before. "It seems as though they caught all the law enforcement agents at the homecoming game last night and picked their timing out very well," says James.

The targeted churches say they hope police catch the people responsible. Law enforcement officials say they more information on the case Monday.
