Newberry Sheriff seeks public's help investigating 3 church burglaries in the Pomaria community

The Newberry County Sheriff’s Office is seeking assistance to solve three burglaries to churches located in the Pomaria section of Newberry County.

Sometime between 8pm Tuesday night and 8am Wednesday morning, someone entered and burglarized three churches. The suspect(s) entered the churches by forcing their way into the church. Once inside the church, the suspects took electronic equipment, food, and a small amount of money. Law enforcement is still working with the victims to place a dollar amount on the items taken
“This is a heinous crime,” said Sheriff Foster. “I was raised and still believe that churches are both sacred and Holy and to break into and steal from them is to steal directly from God. We will make every effort to apprehend and prosecute the person(s) responsible for this crime and I stand convinced that the God who never slumbers or sleeps has seen and is at work as well.” 

The churches were identified as Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Morris Chapel, and St. James A.M.E church. 

There is no description of the suspect(s) or vehicle at this time.

Anyone with any information as to the identity of the suspect(s) is asked to contact the Newberry County Sheriff’s Office at (803) 321-2222, email your tip to, or call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC or text “TIPSC”.
