In a little over a week, two churches within three blocks of each other have been burglarized.

Baltimore County Police say the first incident took place at the St. John's Episcopal Church located in the 11900 block of Belair Road.

Police think someone broke in sometime between 10:30 p.m. on November 16 and 6 a.m. the following day.

The suspect(s) reportedly stole jewelry from a Christmas bazaar display and fled the location.

About eight days later on November 25, just three blocks down in the 11600 block of Belair Road, the Grace Community Church was burglarized.

Police say someone broke through a window around 3:45 a.m. and stole two computer tablets and two laptops.

It's unclear if police have any leads in the case.
