Police responding to an alarm call at a Jefferson St church may have scared off someone who had broken in, according to the police report. The officers responded to the church in the 400 block of 21st Ave at 12:40 a.m. January 20, but they did not find any signs of entry.
After walking around the entire building and checking that doors were secured, officers considered it a false call and contacted someone from the church. They also noted that there were no tracks in the snow.
However, after they left, someone fled the building out a back door. Nothing was stolen, but a door was damaged.
