MINERAL WELLS — Mineral Wells police are requesting information regarding several recent church burglaries.

Two churches in the southeast portion of town were broken into sometime the evening of June 2 or early morning June 3 and a church in the 3700 block of Ram Boulevard was reported broken into Wednesday.

Police believe the burglaries last week took place before 4:30 a.m. June 3.

The doors of a church in the 2500 block of S.E. 14th Avenue were left unlocked, according to police. Someone then opened up the fire extinguisher and threw it in a room and took loose change in a jar, police reported.

A fire extinguisher was used to break open the office door at a church in the 1400 block of S.E. 16th Street and then discharged inside, police said. Loose change was also believed taken from that church, as well.

Police were called to a burglary at a church in the 3700 block of Ram Boulevard around 9:40 a.m. Wednesday, according to a report.

A door window was reportedly broken out, though nothing was reported missing from the building, police said.

Those who provide information through the Palo Pinto County Crime Stoppers program that leads to the arrest or indictment of anyone committing a felony may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Information can be left anonymously at the Crime Stoppers number: (940) 325-0000.
