Columbus officials are working to identify the intruder who caused $1,000 worth of property damages during a University of Avenue Assembly of God burglary.
Police believe the offender may have invaded the place of worship in the 3300 block of University Avenue between Tuesday at 3 p.m. and Wednesday at 8 a.m.
Officers suspect that the intruder kicked in the front west door of the church's annex building, which damaged the door frame, and used it as a primary point of entry. It also seems as if the burglar forced open several doors inside of the building, including one leading to a classroom, reports show.
Police said that they noticed that the back door of the annex building was unlocked, and the shed of the building was pried open.
