North Branch Police investigating church burglaries, one arrest made

The North Branch Police Department is investigating burglaries that occurred at two area churches. Burglaries were reported at St. Gregory’s The Great Catholic Church March 21 and 22. Another burglary occurred at Main Street Methodist Church March 31.

North Branch Police Chief Dan Meyer said Monday his department has a 13-year-old male in custody in relation to the Main Street Church burglary.

That juvenile is being charged with aiding and abetting second-degree burglary.

Authorities are investigating to see if there’s a link between that burglary and the ones at St. Gregory’s.
