The Winston-Salem Police Department reports that on Nov. 15, the Winston-Salem Police Department responded to reports of auto break-ins at three separate churches within a period of three hours: 1st Calvary Baptist, 101 N. Dunleith Ave.; Zion Memorial Baptist, 998 E. Fourth St.; and Diggs Memorial United Holy Church, 125 N. Graham Ave. 

The break-ins occurred while church services were taking place. The thieves targeted both locked and unlocked vehicles, taking anything deemed to be of value. There are no suspects at this time and it is unknown if the break-ins are connected, the police said.

As the holiday season approaches, many religious organizations will be sponsoring events outside of what would be considered normal operating hours. “Please be vigilant to suspicious persons and activity. The Winston-Salem Police Department strongly encourages residents to always lock their vehicles and to secure valuables in the trunk of the vehicle whenever possible,” police said in a statement.

Please report any suspicious persons or activities to the Winston-Salem Police Department at 336-773-7700.
