Who would break into a church, take nothing, and leave their shoes and socks behind?
That’s what Batavia Police want to know.
Someone did just that at the Discovery Chapel on West Main Street.
The break-in was discovered yesterday morning.
Nothing appeared to have been taken from the church, but a jacket, a pair of socks and a pair of shoes were left behind.
Outside in the snow, police found what appeared to be impressions of bare feet leading away from the church.
Anyone with information is asked to call Batavia Police.
