'Last Supper' painting stolen from East Texas church


After a service last Sunday, a painting depicting "The Last Supper" was stolen from a small East Texas church.

The theft happened at New Zion Baptist Church, that's off of FM 850 in eastern Smith County.

Authorities say in addition to the painting, a small stereo system was also taken. And to make matters worse, it could have been an inside job.

Tony Dana of the Smith County Sheriff's Department says, "The church was still locked, no indication of any forced entry."

Authorities say they do have a few possible leads, but aren't releasing any information just yet.
