Police Hope Receipt Will Lead To Arrest
Cookeville police detectives say a fast-food drive thru receipt left at the scene of a church burglary may help them identify the burglar. Authorities say someone broke into the Cookeville Christian Fellowship church on Broad Street over the weekend by smashing out a glass door and reaching through to unlock a deadbolt. And authorities say the thief may have used the paper from the receipt in an attempt to avoid leaving fingerprints at the scene. But they are hoping that the restaurant may have some surveillance video from the time and date stamped on the receipt, which may lead them to a suspect. The burglar took $400 from the church and did more than a thousand dollars in damage to the door.
