Church Thefts

The Aroostook County Sheriff's Office is investigating a break-in at a local church.

Sometime between Sunday evening and Monday morning someone broke into the Easton Baptist Church. Reverend Greg Jackson is the pastor of Easton Baptist. He says money, his laptop, eye glasses and even some candy he had on his desk was taken.

“There’s monetary value to everything, lap top but they did take basically a part of my work in ministry. Basically 5-8 years, maybe 10 comprised of 5 of my thumb drives that were on the desk, one in the computer and they took those. Maybe they’ll scroll down through and see something they like and read it and maybe it’ll make a difference.”

Jackson says Easton Wesleyan church was also broken into. The sheriffs department is asking anyone with information to call 1-800-432-7842.
