The Mankato Department of Public Safety is hoping someone will recognize the suspect and vehicle involved in a theft from a local church.

Commander Dan Schisel says the incident happened last Wednesday at about 10:30 a.m. at St’s. Peter and Paul Catholic Church on North Fifth Street, and, “The individual actually goes in there and tries to break into a box that holds a small amount of cash or donations. He wasn’t able to break in; he actually comes back a second time.”

In the second attempt, Schisel says he, “Came back with something bigger to break into this box.” That attempt was successful.

The dollar amount taken hasn’t been determined.
