The suspect, or suspects, reportedly forced their way into each of the churches listed below through doors or windows:

  • Skycrest United Methodist Church
  • Friendship United Methodist Church

A church van was also stolen from Grace Lutheran Church after the keys were found during the break in. It was found a short time later near Crest Lake Park.
