Arrest Made Friday on Attempted Theft at Evansville Church
An Evansville man was arrested early this (Friday) morning on theft and resisting charges. Evansville Police arrived at a south side church where a burglary in progress call was reported. They saw 41 year old Kenneth Ray Hurtz allegedly fleeing from the building and was captured after a short foot chase. Police say Hurtz may have been in the process of stealing a $13,000 air conditioning unit from the roof. The same church had been the victim of a similar theft recently and had just replaced the unit. Police are looking to see if Hurtz might have been responsible for other thefts in the area.
