Del. police investigate church break-in
NEWPORT, Del. - June 20, 2012 (WPVI) -- Delaware police are investigating a break-in at Saint James Episcopal Church in Newport Wednesday.
It happened around 8:40am Wednesday morning on South Augustine Street in Newport.
The suspect or suspects got in by forcing in an air conditioner. They tried unsuccessfully to get into a safe.
In the end, only food was stolen. But now this church community is left dealing with the aftermath.
"It's just a lot of stuff, money that we can't spend on doing good things because we have to spend now replacing doors and air conditioners," said Rev. Sarah Nelson.
Police believe the suspects were homeless people.
