Hartford Church Burglary Suspect Sought

(Hartford, Conn./CBS Connecticut) – Hartford police are looking for a suspect that burglarized a church and stole two large-screen televisions.

Surveilance video from June 11 shows a suspect entering the Family Worship Center at around 8 p.m. during bible study.

It was later determined the suspect cut a rear entrance alarm wire.

Several hours later, the pastor was notifed that sensors had been set off but police weren’t called, the thinking being the alarm was malfunctioning.

The suspect reentered the church, setting off the sensor but nothing was taken.

It was later determined the suspect returned a third time later the next morning at around nine o’clock and stole the 40-and-60-inch TV sets.

Police say the suspect appears to be a black male, late teens or early 20s, short hair with a thin build.

He was wearing a brown hooded sweatshirt, baseball hat, a red T-shirt under his sweatshirt, dark colored pants, black and white sneakers and carrying a blue Yankees string book bag.

Anyone with any information is asked to get in touch with Hartford Police.
