Burglars Steal Offering During Church Service

Earlier this week, burglars entered a church in Slidell, La., during its 10 a.m. service, kicked down the door to the pastor’s office, and stole money that had been collected by ushers during the service’s earlier offering time, The Times-Picayune reported.

According to police, a witness in the parking lot of the First Pentecostal Church later told investigators that around 11 a.m., two men in their early 20s were seen entering the church. About 15 to 20 minutes later the men exited and left in a small red truck.

Investigators suspect the buglers managed to pry various office doors open with a screwdriver, which was found at the scene.

The amount of money stolen was not disclosed. Detectives are asking anyone with information regarding this crime to call the Crime Stoppers line. Tips can be anonymous, and a cash reward is available.
