Representatives of four different churches reported over the weekend that their sanctuaries were burglarized Saturday night. Two other churches say their facilities have also been robbed in recent days.
Churches in Titusville, Townville, West Mead Township and Pleasantville were robbed on Saturday night or early Sunday morning. Among the items taken were three cash boxes, two safes — one of which apparently did not contain money — and a laptop computer.
Officials from a Guys Mills church also reported a weekend burglary which may have occurred either Friday or Saturday night. Their congregation was robbed of wine, tools and several gift cards.
And an East Mead Township church was robbed of several miscellaneous items sometime over the previous week. Their congregation discovered the burglary early Sunday morning.
At least three of the churches were entered forcibly. At least one of the other three had been left unlocked.
Any information should be forwarded to State Police officials in Crawford or Venango Counties.
