Stories like this just warm your heart, don’t they?. What is especially noteworthy about this theft is that the church’s pastor THINKS there were at least two thieves because the safe weighed between 200 and 300 pounds. I smell an inside job. An alarm goes off at 10:30 p.m. on Sunday. The guard “didn’t notice” anything missing. Hmmm. Then Monday morning at 1:30 a.m. one of the credit cards was used. So we are to believe that the alarm was triggered on accident at 10:30, nothing was the matter, the guard goes back to, uh, guarding. Then “thieves” break in to the church and steal the safe without triggering the alarm and make off with a 200-300 pound safe?
And lastly, as if this whole incident wasn’t enough to turn your stomach, they end it with:
