Suspect in Dayton burglary string hits preschool room at church


DAYTON -- A suspected burglar remains at large after reportedly breaking into a pre-school room at the Community Bible Church on Monday.

According to Pastor Dewayne Ramsey, the suspected burglar took food designated for preschool children and turned up the heat to 75 degrees in the building.

"He breaks in at night, eats, sleeps and disappears like a ghost," Ramsey said. "It's quite unsettling."

The Community Bible Church break-in is the latest in a string of burglaries dating back several months, and police encourage anyone with information to call the Columbia County Sheriff's Office at 509-382-2518.
