Church burglary count increases

Posted By on Tue, Sep 14, 2010 at 3:35 PM

Little Rock Police Lt. Terry Hastings now says police believe as many as five churches were hit by a burglar Sunday night. In addition to churches reported yesterday, he said the Union AME Church at Wright Avenue and Pulaski was burglarized and the Shiloh Church at 2400 S. Maple had a window taken out, which triggered an alarm. No entry was gained. The suspect is driving a 2003 gold Toyota Camry taken in a residential burglary at 1869 S. Gaines.

Hastings said more burglaries may yet turn up at small churches were members left after Sunday services and won't be back in the buildings until Wednesday evening. No suspects have been identified.
