The only thing reported missing from the church was $400 that had been collected for the youth group.
A deputy also met with a leader from Grace Temple Revival Center in the 1100 block of Georgetown Highway that same day. He also reported someone broke a side window in order to gain entry to the building. A walkthrough of the church was conducted and it appeared nothing was missing.
Six Mile Crossing Church of God was also broken into. The pastor said the burglary occurred sometime between Nov. 7-10.
Entry to the church was made through a rear window of the fellowship hall which was unlocked.
