Freeland Police Search For Church Burglars

FREELAND — People who attend St. Luke`s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Freeland cannot believe their place of worship has been violated.

Police are investigating after someone wrenched open a window, and burglarized the place Thursday night.

“You’re a little sad and a little scared and you know, just concerned,” said John Potoskie, president of the church council.

Church officials said they are still trying to figure out what was taken and tally the damage.

Other churches in Freeland have been broken into and people in the community are disgusted.

“I think it’s sickening, it’s disgusting already with everything that’s going on and that. I mean I’ve heard of other church burglaries but it’s horrible. Why are they breaking into churches?” said Judy Collingwood of nearby Foster Township.

“I think it’s horrible, I think it’s awful that it keeps happening,” said Katie DeFalco of Freeland.

“I hope they catch whoever did it, and I hope they get slapped with not just a fine but jail time, really, I do,” said Collingwood.

“There’s a reason that people are out there doing such desperate things, I’m not sure exactly what it is, but it’s sad,” said Potoskie.

Anyone with information is asked to call Freeland Police.
