8 churches burglarized in Cullman County

CULLMAN, AL (WBRC) - Cullman County authorities are searching for those responsible for at least eight church burglaries within the past week.

Cullman County Sheriff Tyler Roden tells FOX6 News that the burglaries are happening all over Cullman County.  Five of the crimes were committed Monday night, and the other three happened last week.  "It's just an odd situation," Roden explained.  "They are taking small items, and leaving other more valuable items behind."
