UPDATE: Church robberies in Sherman

Two churches in the Sherman area were robbed overnight.
The Sherman Church of Christ and Tri-County Baptist churches were robbed, with police being dispatched to both churches at about 3 a.m. Monday, said Sherman Police Chief Joel Spellins.
Sherman police responded to the Church of Christ, while the Lee County Sheriff’s Department handled the Baptist church, because it’s right inside Lee County.
Spellins said he didn’t know what was taken from the Tri-County Baptist Church, but that electronics were stolen from the Sherman Church of Christ.
Because both burglaries were overnight and in the same area, Spellins said he believes the two robberies are connected.
Investigations are under way at both locations, he said.
