Thief steals church offerings while members worship

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - How low can one go? Someone apparently during the middle of morning worship service had their mind on something other than ‘praise and worship,' according to a Nacogdoches Police report.

While church members worshipped close by, thieves were brazenly helping themselves to the Sunday morning offerings at Christian Life Center Church.

The theft occurred shortly after the offering plate had been passed around and the money secured in a strong box in the business office. It has been determined that the amount of money taken was less than $500, but that's not the disturbing part said Sergeant Greg Sowell with the Nacogdoches Police Department. He said the fact that someone had the nerve to take the church's money bag at all is unsettling.

"It looks like someone took the bank bag between 11:40 and 12 noon. That's pretty low and pretty bold to take money from the church," Sergeant Greg Sowell with the Nacogdoches Police Department said. "We've assigned an investigator to the case." At this time, there are no suspects.

Police are encouraging anyone with information that might help solve this case to call Crime Stoppers at 936-560-INFO.
