(Carroll County-AP) -- Intruders hit four churches in Carroll County over the weekend, bringing the total to 16 churches in the area either burglarized or broken into during the past two months. Police want to know why.

Burglaries in general tend to spike during the holiday season, but not for churches, police say.

 Many of break-ins were at small churches isolated in rural areas. They were struck at night, with intruders usually entering by prying open a back door. In some of the cases, nothing was stolen.

Nine churches reported break-ins or burglaries in November, and so far this month at least seven incidents have been reported. Police are asking people to call if they have information that could help nab the church intruders.
