During this time frame, individual(s) have targeted three businesses and two churches and removed money and other property during the commission of these crimes. The methods utilized by the individual(s) are similar in each of these incidents. Someone disabled the electrical service meter at each location in an attempt to disable any burglar alarm systems.
