Someone stole thousands of dollars from the safe at a Watertown church and police are trying to determine who is responsible.
Police said the burglary happened at the St. Mary Magdalen Rectory and Chapel, at 145 Buckingham Street, Oakville, at some point on May 3.
The burglar or burglars went into the building, found a safe where the church collections are kept and stole between around $3,500 to $4000 in cash and checks, then left the building without being undetected.
There were no signs of forced entry in the building and police said it’s believed the safe was not locked.
Police said they are following several leads and reviewing evidence from the scene.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Detective Ferrucci, at the Watertown Police Department, at 860-945-5200 or call CrimeStoppers at 860-945-9940.
