Two Danville churches - Centenary United Methodist at Third and West Walnut streets and Faith Temple Pentecostal on Otter Street - were burglarized late last week.
At least $400 was taken from Centenary United Methodist Church between 8 p.m. Thursday and 8 a.m. Friday, the pastor said today.
The burglar or burglars entered the church by breaking the glass in a basement door and then entered the church's office by breaking the window to the door leading to that room, the Rev. Don Benningfield said. The money taken consisted mainly of money collected from a soft drink machine.
The burglars also appeared to have gone through desk drawers and file cabinets in the office and a pantry in the basement, Benningfield said. "There was some ransacking. They even moved photos on the office wall," he said.
