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.
