Police look for ties in church break-ins

Someone tried to break into a Lexington church overnight, and Lexington police were trying Thursday to determine whether the case was related to three similar break-ins.

Police said the attempted break-in was at the Lexington United Baptist Church on Rockwell Road.

Officers responding to a burglar alarm found that a storage area at the rear of the church had been damaged in an apparent attempt to break into the building.

Police break-ins have occurred over the past week at the Christ Centered Church, Aldersgate United Methodist Church and Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, all on Eastland Parkway. Nothing was taken from Aldersgate, but thieves stole cash and items from other churches.
