The churches hit were Fayetteville Baptist Church on Ind. 158, Calvary Baptist Church on Sieboldt Quarry Road, Hilltop Pentecostal Church, Popcorn Christian Church, in Springville, Spice Valley Church of Christ, near Williams and First Baptist Church on Ridge Road.

Detective Tyler Phillips is investigating the break-ins, because of the number of reports, an additional detective was called in to work Sunday morning to provide assistance.
