TIFTON, GA (WALB) -
A Tifton Christian radio station is asking people to join them in prayer to help find the criminals who broke into the station and stole expensive equipment.
As the investigation continues, the station is planning a prayer gathering.
Plant broadcasting employees are working on their stations after thousands of dollars worth of equipment was stolen.
They say the community's outpouring of support led them to invite the public to the station.
Engineers are working hard to get Hook FM back on the air at full strength after a lot of their equipment was stolen. The ideals they talked about on the air are what they are leaning on now.
"We are all about family," said Plant Broadcasting GM Eric Hatcher. "If a person listens to the Hook. You see that we are friend and family oriented. We decided, what is one of the best things we could do? And one of the best things we can do is just to get together and pray."
The general manager for the station says the stolen items are very valuable both in terms of money and personal meaning.
"We want to get our stuff back," Hatcher said. "That is the main thing. Let the authorities deal with the people that have done this. More so than anything, there is stuff that can't be replaced."
They are asking people to join them for a prayer gathering on Friday to pray for the thieves and the station. They have been overwhelmed with the outpouring of support.
"Just from the calls, the emails, the facebook messages," Hatcher said. "I have had radio stations even reach out to us from Atlanta saying 'hey, we are a Christian station. We heard what has happened to you guys. We have got some extra equipment, can you use any of this?'"
For a station that brings joy to lives and music to ears of their listeners, this support has been comforting to them.
"Just to see the community come together and help us during this time," Hatcher said. "This is a mystery. We really can't put our finger on who would do something like this?"
They are hoping prayer will answer that question and bring their equipment back.
We did talk to Tifton police Thursday. They said they are still in the investigation process. They are interviewing many people, but still do not have strong suspects yet.
The prayer gathering will be Friday night at six o'clock at the radio station on West 2nd street.
