MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - Manitowoc County Sheriff's are offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspects involved in a series of church burglaries.
Sheriff Robert Hermann says the three break-ins took place in the past week at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Town of Liberty, Silver Lake College Generose Enrichment Center in Manitowoc and St. Anne Catholic Church in Francis Creek.
"They're all very similar and they're occurring in other jurisdictions as well," says Sheriff Hermann. "It appears that the suspect is breaking in through the windows and attempting to locate U.S. currency."
At least four other churches in Brown, Kewaunee and Sheboygan counties have been burglarized in a similar fashion, according to investigators.
Anyone with information leading to the arrest of the person, or persons, responsible could be eligible for the reward from Crime Stoppers. That number is (920) 683-4466.
