A number of LaRue County churches were hit by thieves last week and so far, there are no suspects in the case.
The LaRue County Sheriff’s Department is investigating break-ins or attempted break-ins at South Fork Baptist, Buffalo Baptist, Roanoke House of Prayer, Salem Christian, Magnolia Baptist and Hodgenville Pentecostal.
The first break-in occurred at South Fork July 26 when a small safe containing about $8,000 in offerings (cash and checks) was removed from the building. A second break-in occurred between Aug. 17 and 18. About $30 was taken from the church.
