School janitor admits to St. Bridget’s Church burglaries

| February 4, 2012

HOBART | A Gary man employed as a janitor at St. Bridget's Catholic School admitted to committing a string of recent burglaries of church properties, including the school and rectory.

The incidents began last June and were as recent as last weekend.

During a taped interview, Fred Christopher Greene, 26, confessed his guilt to Hobart Detective Jeremy Ogden, who had been investigating the case.

Greene said he had stolen a master key to open the doors to the rectory and the school to commit the burglaries, including one on Christmas Day.

Ogden said some of the stolen items, including a projector, camera and radio, taken from the school on Jan. 26, were found at Greene's home.

The Rev. Dominic Bertino, pastor of St. Bridget's Parish, in the 500 block of East Second Street, said the first of the burglaries was early June 11. He woke up and noticed the outside doors of his residence at the rectory were open.
