ALLEGAN COUNTY, Mich. (WZZM)- Detectives believe a man and a woman, accused of breaking into an Allegan County business, may also be responsible for burglaries in Kent, Ottawa and Muskegon Counties. 

Deputies arrested the suspects Monday after a break-in at a golf course in Otsego.  Detectives believe they broke into up to a dozen businesses and churches in the past three weeks taking safes, cash and electronics.  West Olive CRC and Life Tree Community Church were among those targeted.

Scott DeVries, a Pastor with West Olive CRC said, "It's just really unfortunate.  You think you're safe in a neighborhood like this and, kinda feel a little violated from it.  We're just trying to put our trust in God and go from there."

Jeff Elzinga, a Pastor with LifeTree Community Church said, "The first thought we had was kind of a sadness, like 'why would somebody rob from a church?'But we said right upfront that we forgive them regardless."

Tuesday investigators recovered $10,000 worth of stolen valuables at the suspects' home in Grand Haven Township.  Deputies say the suspects will likely be charged Thursday.
