— Johnston County deputies have set up a task force to catch those responsible for breaking into area churches.

Deputies said 11 churches have been robbed of electronics over the past six weeks.

The churches are located in rural neighborhoods and deputies believe the cases are related.

Church members are being encouraged to check their buildings every day and to report any suspicious activity.
