A man accused of stealing from a church
accidentally told on himself. Crisp County Sheriff's investigators say
this surveillance video shows Nathaniel Bass taking nearly $3,000 worth of
items from First Baptist Church in Cordele.
Investigators say Bass recently got out of
prison. They were able to track him down because
he left an envelope containing his parole papers at the church. They say you should always keep your doors
to protect your belongings and watch out for your neighborhood.
"I guess the biggest thing the community can
do is make sure you secure your valuables and be a good witness, don't try to
apprehend somebody," said Ben Bray, Sergeant, Crisp County Sheriff's office.
Investigators recovered the stolen items that included a computer, a
camera, and a D-V-D player.
