NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - Police are searching for a person responsible for breaking into a church and Chinese restaurant Thursday morning.
Holly McPherson with the Newport News Police Department said someone used a piece of concrete to shatter a door at Grace and Truth Fellowship Church in the Sherwood Shopping Center at 13771 Warwick Boulevard. The suspect stole a candle, which was then used to break the glass door at the New Chinese Buffet nearby.
Several hundreds of dollars were stolen from the restaurant’s cash register, McPherson said.
Additionally, a burglary attempt was made at the Jing Jing Asian restaurant located at 562 Denbigh Boulevard. A piece of concrete was also used to breaking a window. According to McPherson, the restaurant was burglarized earlier in the month.
Police have not connected that attempt to the two at Sherwood Shopping Center.
Anyone with information should call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
