Money stolen from 2 Hempfield churches

Thursday, March 31, 2011
 

Two Hempfield churches within walking distance of one another were burglarized early this week, state police at Greensburg said.

About $1,500 was taken from Our Lady of Grace Church on Mt. Pleasant Road, and $20 was taken from the Maplewood Presbyterian Church on nearby Woodland Road, police said.

Both churches were likely entered through a window, according to authorities. Interior doors were damaged in both cases. Filing cabinets were damaged at Maplewood.

The incidents occurred between 8:15 p.m. Monday and 7:10 a.m. Tuesday, police said.
