ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Bold thieves targeted two churches in Cotton last weekend and now parishioners at one of those churches are encouraging the thieves to bring back the stolen items.
The sign in front of The Cotton Assembly church encourages the burglars who "borrowed" the church's black Tama drum set to bring it back. It belonged to the Pastor. Members discovered it was missing Saturday when they stopped by to pick it up for a concert at Pelham High School. They used another set for the concert, and say the thieves will ultimately be judged by a higher authority.
"Not only did they take from the house of God, but they also took the preacher's drums and when I read in my bible it says touch not mine nor anyone do my property no harm and I feel sorry for anyone who does this and doesn't make it right to have to face the wrath of God," said Jessica Burkett, the Pastor's Daughter.
Burglars also broke into Burns Memorial Baptist Church right next door and stole more than 6,000 dollars in items including bronze candelabras. The Mitchell County Sheriff's Office says they've checked with several pawn shops for the stolen merchandise but have come up empty.
