Two Huntsville men charged in county church burglaries

— Two Huntsville men are facing charges in connection with burglaries at three Limestone County churches.

Limestone County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Daniel Joseph Griswold, 46, and Christopher Allen Griswold, 24, at their 3909 Talwell Drive SW apartments on charges of third-degree burglary, Limestone County Sheriff Mike Blakely said.

The alleged incidents occurred over the weekend off U.S. 31, south of Athens, the sheriff said.
