December 23, 2013
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The man who burglarized Hermitage Church of the Nazarene on Saundersville Road early today is going to be very surprised to see his face on television and in newspapers. Unbeknownst to the gloved burglar, a concealed surveillance camera inside a church office captured clear images of him as he rummaged about looking for things to steal. The burglar made off with cash, a camera and two laptops.
Hermitage Precinct detectives are also investigating whether the same man is responsible for a burglary between late Saturday night and early Sunday morning at Tulip Grove Baptist Church on Shute Lane during which two-way radios and flashlights were taken, and an attempted burglary during that same time period at Hermitage Funeral Home & Memorial Gardens on Shute Lane.
Anyone recognizing the burglar from the surveillance images recorded this morning is urged to immediately contact Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
