Crime Stoppers: Dream Home Break-In & Parking Lot Vandals

By Gene Birk | 

Thieves hit the St. Jude Dream Home and someone tears up a church parking lot in Edmonson County.

Someone has sunk so low, they have vandalized and burglarized a home being built to help pay the medical expenses of children stricken with cancer.

That's the Aug. 22, 2007, "Crime of the Week."

Bowling Green Police are investigating a burglary at the St. Jude Dream Home under construction in the Olde Stone subdivision.

Sometime Saturday night, August 19, a burglar (or burglars) forced their way into the new home and stole a 42-inch Vizio Flat-Screen TV valued at $1300.

More than $1,000 in damage was done to the home.

If you know anything about this despicable act please call "Crime Stoppers" at 781-CLUE or go to to get to their website.

You could get up to $1,000 for your tip.

Also this week, Kentucky State Police are investigating damage to an Edmonson County church.

Sometime between Monday, Aug. 13 and Wednesday, Aug. 15, someone did burn-outs in the parking lot of the Chalybeate United Baptist Church at 700 Chalybeate School Rd.

Whoever did, accelerated to such high speeds that the tires actually dug holes into the lot before they shredded, leaving pieces of melted rubber and wire strewn across the parking lot.

Evidence shows the suspect replaced the tire with a mini-spare and then left the scene.

Damage estimate is in the thousands.
