Parishioners did not expect to see a crime scene when they arrived at Sacred Heart Church in North Merrick on Wednesday.

Police are trying to figure out who broke into the pastoral center sometime overnight and stole an unspecified amount of money.

However, it wasn't just the pastoral center that someone allegedly broke into. Police say someone also broke into the old Sacred Heart Elementary School building.

The building has been abandoned for the past few months, and it is unclear exactly what was taken.

It is unclear how the suspect or suspects got into the buildings, and whether they broke in or not.

The pastor of sacred heart wouldn't speak with Eyewitness News - neither would those at the diocese of Rockville Centre.
