Church Burglar Caught On Tape


FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) – Lee Heights Baptist Church sits on the corner of Sevier Avenue and Kentucky Avenue.

The 400 member church is a welcoming place, but last Friday night it had an unexpected guest.  It happened a little after midnight.

“We just had worship this weekend. And discovered something’s were missing in our building,” said senior pastor Chris Barnett.

Florence police say those things were thousands of dollars’ worth of electronics.

Surveillance pictures show the person is looking for items in different rooms around the church.

"To the person who took the items. We aren't so much concerned about the items as where you are going to spend your eternity. We would invite him to come and be a part of our worship service this next Sunday," said Barnett.

If you have any information that can help police, you are urged to contact Shoal Crime Stoppers at 256-386-8685.
