(SOUTH BEND) - Police are looking into a string of break-ins at South Bend-area churches over the past two months.

The South Bend Tribune reports at least 17 burglaries or attempted break-ins have been reported at church properties in South Bend and unincorporated St. Joseph County since the beginning of September. Items stolen from churches, sheds and garages include cash, computers and lawn equipment.

St. Joseph County police Assistant Chief Bill Thompson says it's unusual to have this many churches targeted in that timespan. He says it appears likely some of the burglaries were committed by the same person or group.

South Bend police Capt. Robert Hammer says there aren't obvious clues linking the burglaries, aside from the targets and items taken.
