Burglaries reported at Waterloo and Cedar Falls churches

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Burglars have hit several churches in Waterloo and Cedar Falls.

Police say Trinity Lutheran was one of four churches hit in Waterloo.

Authorities are asking churches to take extra precautions to make sure electronic devices, valuable items & church collections aren't taken.

Burglaries were also reported at Blessed Sacrament, Zion Lutheran and Sacred Heart Church in Waterloo.

Police say, be aware of your surroundings.

Keep doors locked when they are not being monitored. Keep all areas well lit.

After church services or other activities, make sure everyone has left the building before locking up. Your personal safety and the safety of others are paramount. If you should encounter someone in the building, call the police and be a good witness.

Lock up all electronic devices and other items of value. Don't become an easy target.

Do not leave large sums of money in the church. Initiate a plan to get the church collection to a financial institution as soon as possible.

Please contact your local law enforcement agency if you have any questions or concerns.
