Three arrested in connection with church break-ins
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Police have arrested three men believed to be responsible for a series of break-ins at a Fresno church.
Investigators say Harmony Freewill Church at Belmont and Villa in Southeast Fresno has had car parts, air conditioning equipment, and parts of the church's sprinkler system stolen during multiple break-ins in recent weeks.
In the most recent burglary thieves even stole the church's surveillance cameras but they didn't get away with the video those cameras recorded.
Those recordings led authorities to 24-year-old Christopher Robinson, 18-year-old Jesse Perez, and 47-year-old Eddie Palma.
Investigators say when they arrested Robinson and Palma they were both wearing clothing seen in the video.
They say the suspects also had four video cameras with serial numbers that matched cameras that were stolen from the church.
