Two churches were broken into just 10 minutes apart.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Police are investigating to see if there's a possible connection after someone broke into two churches less than a mile apart.

The burglaries happened Thursday evening at Houston Chinese Church on 10305 S. Main., and St. Luke's Presbyterian Church on 815 Timberside Dr.

The Houston Police Department responded to burglary alarm for a broken window about 11:35 p.m. at Houston's Chinese Church, but did not find a suspect. Just 10 minutes later, HPD received another burglary alarm call at St. Luke's Presbyterian Church.

Police says that a locked cabinet at Houston's Chinese Church had been broken, but nothing of value had been taken. It's unknown if anything was taken from St. Luke's.

There's no info on the suspect, but police say Houston's Chinese Church workers are reviewing surveillance video.
