A church was burglarized in West Pullman on the Far South Side Sunday, a day after a man was arrested for breaking into a church in Humboldt Park.
Officers responded to a burglary call about 9:30 p.m. Sunday and met a staff member at the church in the 400 block of West 120th Street, Chicago police said.
The member told officers a burglar entered through the main doors on the north side of the building and stole a snow blower, police said.
No one was in custody.
A 20-year-old man was charged Saturday in connection with a burglary at a church in Humboldt Park on the Northwest Side.
Torribio Mora faces a felony count of burglary of a place of worship, and a misdemeanor count of criminal trespassing, Chicago police said.
About 1:10 a.m. Saturday, officers met with a custodial worker and found a broken window on the side of the church in the 900 block of North Washtenaw Avenue, police said.
Video surveillance showed a male taking several items from the church, police said.
About 45 minutes later, Mora was found inside the church and identified as the person who committed the burglary, police said.
