Someone threw a large rock through the front door of the Rainbow Music at 208 South Jackson about 2:00 AM.  Police riding by saw the broken window and stopped a person walking away.  Nothing taken, but the door will cost about $300 to repair. 

Willie Tom Green was caught by Police, and charged with burglary.

Also burglarized about 4:00AM, the OK Beauty and Fashion Store in the 300 block of South Slappey Boulevard. 

Someone broke a front window, broke a board wall and snatched the cash register, and some cash inside. 

Also someone pushed a window air conditioner out of the window of one of the Sunday School rooms at the River Road Church of Christ on Martin Luther King Junior Drive about 3:00AM. 

The alarm sounded, and the burglar never went inside. Church deacons are upset by the break in at their worship center.

The Bethany Temple Church of God in Christ on Odom Avenue was broken into early Sunday morning.
