GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police have charged two men with burglarizing several churches and businesses in Georgetown and Lincoln.

The agency says in a news release Friday that the churches and businesses were burglarized between April 22 and May 16. Troopers say the suspects broke in by breaking windows, removing window air-conditioners or cutting a hole in the roof.

Investigators say the suspects stole cash, power tools and other construction equipment. In some cases, police say, nothing was stolen but the churches and businesses were vandalized, causing thousands of dollars in damage.

Troopers say Christopher Willey of Georgetown and Christopher Carter of Harrington, who are both 24, were arrested earlier this month. They care charged with numerous counts of burglary, theft and other offenses.
