Thieves are again targeting Hutchinson churches.

Police say a break-in Wednesday night at the McGee Chapel, Church of God in Christ, was the third church break-in in less than a week. Some petty cash was stolen but no significant damage was reported.

That burglary came a day after a break-in at First Presbyterian Church, where a maintenance worker surprised a young male burglar and chased him out of the church. Nothing was stolen. And sometime during the weekend, the First Christian Church was vandalized and about $60 was stolen.

This summer, more than a dozen church break-ins were reported in Hutchinson. Four people were arrested in those crimes.

The Hutchinson News reports police have not found any evidence linking any of the previous suspects to the recent break-ins.
