Following an interview with the suspects, a warrant was obtained to search their home, where more than $10,000 worth of stolen goods were recovered, Bennett said. Most of that has been returned to the owners.

Police have been investigating the break-ins for the past three weeks, including ones at West Olive Christian Reformed Church, Robinson Grace Bible Church, Lifetree Community Church and the Pigeon Creek Golf Course.

Bennett said it is possible the suspects may be connected to other cases in Ottawa County, as well as other jurisdictions.
