ENID, Okla.-- A total of seven churches have been broken into in Enid.

Police believe all the break-ins could be connected.

“They came into this room. They broke into the safe and took everything that we had into the safe out of it,” said Bailey Phillips.

At Christ United Methodist, they're still trying to recover.

“We had to alert all those parents cause that's the money that was taken was for our children's day out program. So we had to alert the families to be aware your checks were stolen from the church. Watch your bank account,” said Bailey Phillips, Youth Director.

Phillips says whoever broke in stole a part of the church surveillance system.

“It makes it scary. I used to come up here late in the evening and I would come up here late now I'm scared to come up here by myself. We are all scared to come up here by ourselves,” said Phillips.

It's the same story at the other churches. Police say it appears the crooks know exactly where to go.

“Most of them they break in and immediately go to the office and rummage around. If they find a safe or money bags they will take those,” Lt. Tim Jacobi, Enid Police Department.

Audio and video equipment was stolen from some churches, a whole safe from one church and various bank papers from others.

Right now police don't have any suspects.

They are counting on the public's help with this one before another church becomes a target.

If you can help call the Enid Police Department.
