Beaverton Police Arrest 3 in String of Church Burglaries

BEAVERTON, OREGON -- Police in Beaverton, Oregon executed two search warrants and arrested three men in the case of a string of church break-ins that included six LDS chapels around the city. The search warrants discovered evidence, including items marked "LDS," that were taken from the churches.

Gregory Patrick Schley, 19, Richard Glenn Blount, 19, and Timothy Lee DeGeorge, 21, were arrested in the case and are being held on $10,000 bail each after being charged with second-degree burglary. Investigators have also obtained blood samples from the men that will be compared to blood found at the crime scenes.

Also discovered in the search was evidence linking the suspects to burglaries that didn't involve churches, allowing police to rule-out an attack on religion as a motive. But the police don't believe they have the entire story yet, and are continuing their investigation and search for additional suspects.
