LEHI, Utah - For the second time this spring, someone broke into and a Utah County church and got away with electronics and a few other items.

This time the suspect was caught on camera and police now say he may be a serial burglar.

The latest break-in happened Monday night at the Alpine Bible Church in Lehi.

In the surveillance video, the suspect uses a pry bar to force his way in the door.

Then, once inside, he helped himself to a laptop and some other things.

The pastor of the church said this is the second time they've been broken into and robbed.

Lehi police are investigating and said, based on the general appearance of the suspect, he may be linked to even more, unsolved crimes in the area.

In this latest case, the burglar left behind potential evidence, some of his burglary tools.

Detectives sent those to the crime lab to see if there are fingerprints.

If you know the suspect or have any information about the case, call Lehi Police at (801) 768-7110.
