NEWBERRY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Officials say a suspect is in custody for his connection to several church break ins in Newberry County.

Newberry County Sheriff Lee Foster said that investigators were able to locate physical evidence from one of the crime scenes and discovered a positive match with the suspect’s DNA from the crime scene.

Sheriff Foster said 38-year-old Terrance Leonard Chisolm was taken into custody in Aiken County. He said when Chisolm was arrested they found additional evidence linking him to the crimes.

“We praise our investigators who had the expertise, training, and experience to properly collect and submit this evidence,” said Sheriff Foster. “We also commend the State Law Enforcement Division and their labs for making this match.”

Chisolm will be charged with five church burglaries in Newberry County, the sheriff said.

Detectives say they believe he is also involved in related church burglaries in Fairfield and Chester Counties.

Additional updates will be released once they are available.
