More than 20 LDS Church buildings throughout the Salt Lake Valley were broken into

Authorities said the “frequency” of break-ins occurred over the past four days.

(Leah Hogsten | The Salt Lake Tribune) The Angel Moroni at the Bountiful Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, December 10, 2022. Over 20 Latter-day Saint buildings were burglarized throughout the Salt Lake Valley this week.

More than 20 Latter-day Saint buildings were broken into throughout the Salt Lake Valley this week, and authorities suspect the break-ins may be related.

Herriman police Sgt. Josh Jennings said there have been 22 burglaries in the area since Wednesday, but he did not have an exact timeline for the break-in at each church building. Some of the buildings were damaged in the break-ins, police said, but the only valuable item stolen was a television.

“It’s obviously a pretty good swing,” Jennings said. “But at this point we don’t really have a lot of tips or insight into who it could be.”

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who frequent the buildings, reported the break-ins. Jennings said it was difficult to determine exactly when each break-in occurred because authorities had to rely on who was last in the building and when. Members noticed something was wrong.
