Thieves were busy this week in Dover Township, as someone hit a church and a communication tower recently.
Chatham-Kent police say sometime between Monday and Wednesday, someone forced their way into the New St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church on St. Andrew’s Line, causing about $2,000 in damage.
Once inside, the thieves stole a laptop and projector, valued at about $1,200.
Also, sometime late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning, someone got into a fenced compound on the same road and cut ground wires to a communication tower, causing about $6,000 in damage. They made off with about $400 in copper wiring.
