ALBANY, GA (WALB) – An Albany church and outreach center was the target of thieves for the fourth time in as many weeks.

Sunday morning the pastor of Word Of Faith Outreach Deliverance Church Ministries showed up to find parts of the center ransacked.

She showed us where the thieves stole a radio from the sanctuary and a tried to steal a television but failed.

They've broken the glass in the front of the store, and the one on the main door.

She says all the damage from the break-ins will cost at least $3,000.

Church leaders can't imagine why someone would target the house of God so many times.

"I don't feel happy about it at all because I came here to help the needy and people who are homeless I give them clothes, shoes and food, I don't know why they would do this," Pastor Lilie Washington.

Police dusted for prints but didn't find any.

The pastor is worried the criminals may be back for more valuables.

She is asking if anyone saw anything suspicious to contact Albany Police.
