Cleveland Police were on the scene of a reported break-in at Saint Therese Catholic Church today.

According to officials at the Cleveland Police Department, this is the second time in the past few days they have responded to a call at the church regarding a burglary.

Interim Lt. Matt Jenkins of the Property Crimes Division of the Criminal Investigations Division said the first reported incident netted an undisclosed amount of cash and other items for the alleged offender.

Crime scene technicians were on the scene today collecting evidence, according to Jenkins.

Detective Bill Parks is in charge of the investigation.

n A motorcyclist traveling on Harrison Pike was riding behind a pickup truck towing a trailer loaded with an HVAC unit when the unit fell off the trailer, reportedly causing the cyclist to crash.

According to a report filed by deputy Kolby Duckett of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, cyclist Tony Cates said the truck pulled from a residence on Harrison Pike into his lane of travel. The HVAC unit strapped to the trailer came loose and struck his cycle, causing the crash.

According to Duckett’s reports, as he began investigating, he found the HVAC unit had been stolen from 4973 Harrison Pike residence belonging to Angela Black.

Detective Michael Hughes of the Bradley County Sherrif’s Office Criminal Investigations Division had been at the residence last week regarding someone taking Black’s HVAC unit. That original unit had not been recovered and Black had just purchased and installed the unit which reportedly fell from the truck and trailer.

The truck was described as being possibly an older model white Ford Crew-Cab.

Evidence was collected at the scene.

Hughes is continuing the investigation.
