THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Monday evening about 7:00, Pastor William Brinson Pastor of the Willowhead Missionary Baptist church told Thomasville police that someone had shattered a window and stolen a flat screen TV off the wall of his office.

Here is Officer Donna Langston's official report-

On Monday April 29, 2013 at 1906 hours, I Officer Humphries responded to 615 E Calhoun St in reference to a burglary. Upon my arrival at 1915 hours I met with the Pastor of the Willowhead Missionary Baptist church, Mr. William Brinson. Brinson advised me that sometime between April 28 at 1930 hours and this date at 1850 hours, his church had been broken in to and a flat screen TV stolen from his office.

Brinson walked with me around to the rear of the church where I observed a broken rear window. The window had a hole in the center of it. The window was in the down position upon my arrival. Brinson advised me he had not touched it since he arrived on scene. I walked in to the church and into Mr. Brinson`s office where I observed the damage to the window from the inside of the church.

Glass lay shattered on the ground beneath the window. I observed a softball size peace of gravel on the floor that I believe was used to bust the window of the church. Brinson advised me the only thing that appeared to have been stolen from the church was the flat screen TV that was mounted on the wall of his office.

Brinson stated the TV was a Vizio 19" flat screen. Brinson did not know the exact value of the TV but estimated it to be around $300. Brinson did not have the serial number available or any of the paper work which came with the TV.

 It did not appear to me that the rest of the church had been rummaged through. Everything was neat and a lot of very valuable items were still in place in the church. I appeared the office of Brinson was the only place gone through by the offender.

After walking around the perimeter of the church I did notice what appeared to be somewhat fresh tire tracks of a vehicle. The tracks led from the left side of church around to the right side. It appeared someone maybe have parked their vehicle behind the church while committing the crime. Brinson advised me nobody drives through the grass behind the church normally.

Investigator Maxwell arrived on scene at nearly the same time I did. Maxwell process the crime scene. Mr. Brinson was given my card and a victim bill of rights and told to contact me with any additional information about the burglary.
