Residents Asked to Watch for Potential Church Burglaries

Over the past two weeks the Franklin County Sheriff's Office has received a total of seven burglary reports from area churches throughout the county.  The suspects appear to be targeting the daily offerings and musical equipment at each of the churches and forcing their way in through windows and doors.  With the holidays approaching, the Sheriff's Office is encouraging neighborhood watch groups and citizens of Franklin County to report anything suspicious.  Among the suggestions to curb these crimes are having parishoners in the area check on their church frequently, removing all money and valuables when not in use, and placing security cameras on church properties.
