New Church Burglary In Tullahoma

Tullahoma Police continue to investigate the burglaries of several churches in the area. The latest was at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints located on the Old Shelbyville Hwy. According to a report by Daryn Gadeken, thieves entered the building by breaking out a window to gain entry to the building. Once inside they broke open all of the file cabinets and ransacked the office. They then pried open the Bishops office and took a small coin/medallion. They also went the items in that office. Tullahoma Police Chief Paul Blackwell suggests that churches pay attention to their buildings. The chief explained that this is an important time for churches to set the alarm system. Be sure to lock all doors and insure any exterior lighting is turned on.
