Churches, beware of thieves. A rash of break-ins and burglaries of Baltimore County churches over the past few weeks has left congregants anxious and police baffled but pastors forgiving. "Folks are very afraid," said Edward Campbell, a 65-year-old Cockeysville resident who was appalled that the church he attends, Epworth United Methodist, had been burglarized during the night of July 17. It was one of eight churches in the area and one parish house known to have been struck by thieves since the end of June.
