Churches in Chillicothe are on the lookout after 30 break-ins in just 10 weeks, but is your church prepared if the same thing happens in your community?
Investigators are making some headway in the investigation of more than 30 break-ins at area churches during the past 10 weeks. Chillicothe police have taken at least 15 reports of church break-ins, mostly on the east side, since Oct. 1. More than half of the incidents have happened in the past four weeks. Break-ins at Ross County churches picked up in November, and have climbed to 18 in fewer than four weeks. That figure doesn’t factor in churches that have been targeted for their air conditioning units, which also has been an issue in the county.
