Three people arrested after a church break-in early Wednesday are believed to have been involved in at least three other church burglaries in Mercer County, state police said Saturday.

State police in Mercer arrested Trevor Bromley, 27, and Kayla Davis, 25, both of Greenville, and Daniel Griggs, 20, of Hartstown on charges of burglary, theft and mischief.

Bromley and Griggs jumped out of a window and ran from Clarks Mills United Methodist Church in Perry when police arrived about 1 a.m., leaving behind items they intended to steal, police said. Police said they also caused a large amount of damage inside the church, including breaking a window during their escape.

Police said they caught Griggs, and found Davis in a car nearby. Police said Davis admitted to being the get-away driver. Bromley was taken into custody later in the day.

State police said additional charges will be filed against the trio in connection with burglaries at three other churches, which were not identified. Each is being held in Mercer County Jail on $50,000 bond, records show.
