  6. Man who raided churches for money jailed

    A man who broke into churches and caused tens of thousands of pounds damage has been jailed.

    Mihaita Rosca smashed his way into most of the churches by throwing rocks through stained glass windows and once inside he ransacked them looking for money or computers.

    Rosca paid for an extended summer holiday by stealing cash from collection and charity boxes and selling off the other items he stole.

    He started his crime wave in Weymouth, Dorset, then moved to Devon, where he targeted churches in Sidmouth, Exmouth, Exeter, Tavistock, Newton Abbot and Teignmouth.

    He was caught because he left DNA or fingerprints and after his arrest he gave police 'treasure map' style directions to find a buried hoard of loot in a field off School Way in Okehampton.

    Rosca, 26, whose last address was in Swindon, admitted 13 burglaries in Devon and Dorset and asked for three more in East Anglia and four in London to be taken into consideration.

    He was jailed for two years by Recorder Mr James Freeman at Exeter Crown Court.
