Burglars targeting churches in Colquitt County

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - Burglars in Colquitt County are targeting churches. Friendship Alliance Church is one of at least four churches broken into recently.

The thieves stole two televisions and an empty safe and caused costly damage. The pastor is disappointed he now has to spend church money on security.

"This year we're going to have to spend money on that. It's something that you don't really want to do--spending money that people give to the church on things like security but we're going to have to do that," said Pastor Stephen Scarrow.

Calvary Baptist Church was also broken into. Detectives were able to get a fingerprint off a TV stand but have not announced any suspects or arrests.
