Local Dayton church broken into, suspect caught on live video


A Ministry of Love church, located at 1210 Miami Chapel Road, was broken into early Monday morning.

Pastor Ivan Love told police he saw a live video of a suspect walking around inside the church after the alarm system went off, according to a Dayton police report.

As police were checking the building for signs of forced entry, they came upon a broken basement window that was located on the east side of the church, the report stated.

It appears the suspect climbed through the basement window, moved around inside the building, and used a small ladder to climb out at the point of entry, police said.

Love told police he was unable to identify anything missing at this time.

The suspect in the video appeared to be a short male with dark hair and wearing a t-shirt.
