THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Investigators hope they've put an end to a rash of church and home burglaries in Thomasville.

From October 12th to November 1st, police say 6 churches and several homes were burglarized. Some were hit multiple times.

Thomasville Police Arrested 46-year-old William Watson. They believe he's responsible for all the burglaries.

Speakers, microphones, computers, a guitar, and even some religious items were stolen. Some of the items have been recovered, but there's still a lot missing.

"We've recovered some of the items that were stolen from the churches and some residences but we need the communities help. If Mr. Watson has given them an item or sold something to them we'd like them to come forward," says Karen Murray, CID Commander for the Thomasville Police Department.

Police say they are still investigating the burglaries and will make more arrests if necessary. Feedback
