NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Authorities are accusing two men of breaking into 10 churches in or near Philadelphia, taking safes, precious metals, electronics and other items. Charges that include burglary were filed this week against 21-year-old Gabriel Minnick and 20-year-old Samaj Howard, both of Philadelphia. A message seeking comment was left Friday with the Montgomery County public defender's office. The men are accused of taking a TV from a nursery, cash from a collection box for the poor and bottles of wine, among other things. They also allegedly damaged church buildings and prosecutors say they face charges related to three stolen vehicles.
