IRONDALE, Ala. (AP) — Police in Alabama say they are looking for a man who disguised himself as Batman while burglarizing churches.

AL.Com reports a church in Irondale was burglarized on Dec. 11 and Jan. 6.

Musical instruments were stolen both times.

The caped crook also stole more instruments from two churches in Jasper and one in Walker County on Jan. 9.

Anyone with information can call Irondale police, Jasper police or Walker County Sheriff.

Irondale is a suburb of Birmingham. Jasper is approximately 40 miles northwest of Birmingham.

Irondale Det. Sgt. Michael Mangina says churches in Georgia and Tennessee may have been burglarized by the same suspect.
