  • A Hutchinson teenager is facing charges after being arrested in two church burglaries.
    The 17-year-old was arrested Friday after a custodian discovered him at the First Church of God. Nothing was reported stolen from that church.
    But police say the teenager is also a suspect in the theft of some cash from Riverside Baptist Church less than an hour before the break-in at the First Church of God.
    The teen also is suspected of breaking into vehicles in the past week.
    Investigators say the thefts apparently aren't related to a string of church burglaries that hit Hutchinson in 2012.
