Around ten church burglaries in three counties, but no arrests.

Police are searching for suspects and links between all the burglaries in Letcher, Perry, and Knott Counties.

Police are on the look out for anyone involved in at least ten church burglaries in and around Letcher County.

Police are not sure if the burglaries were done by the same person, but fear that some may be copy-cat offenses.

Police say they have some leads, but so far, no arrests.

This church was found in shambles by one of its own church members.

Luckily, nothing was stolen here, but other churches were not so lucky. Police are unsure why churches are being targeted.

Anyone with more information should contact the Letcher County Sheriff's Office or Kentucky State Police.

The Farm Bureau in Letcher County is offering a $5,000 reward for anyone with information leading to arrest in the church buglaries.
