TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) -- Authorities say a string of burglaries at Magic Valley churches and non-profits might be connected.

The Times-News reports that a church employee says someone stole a sound board and two TVs from the Amazing Grace Fellowship in Twin Falls on Wednesday.

In the past few months, thieves and vandals also targeted the Islamic Center of Twin Falls, the Monastery of the Ascension in Jerome and two Mormon church buildings. The Safe Harbor food pantry was also broken into twice.

Police are asking church leaders and churchgoers to keep an eye out for suspicious behavior, like someone new checking doors or scoping things out.
