Police arrest two teens in church burglaries

WKRN Channel 2 News Nashville, Tenn. - Metro police arrested two teenagers after the latest from a string of church burglaries early Monday morning. Monday morning's arrest happened at Light House Baptists Church on Blue Hole Road. Officers flooded the area and caught two 18-year-olds. Police told News 2, one of the teens was out on probation for breaking into the same church two months ago. Police said they have investigated at least seven church burglaries in the past two weeks. One week prior to Monday's burglary, News 2 spoke with members of the two churches broken into on Haywood Lane not too far from Light House Baptist Church. "Of all places, why would you break into a church?" said Lutheran Church member Ken Krebs. "It just does not make sense." Related back to Monday's arrest, police said the recent rash of burglaries started the same day. One of the suspects was released on probation. To see related video:
