Reverend says crooks have no guilt burglarizing church

Albany Police are investigating the burglary of an East Albany church.

Officials with New St. Stephens Baptist Church in the 1100 block of East Third Avenue found the break-in Monday morning.

Someone forced open the side door to the church addition being built, then broke open a cabinet and stole candy and food.

Reverend L. Green said "The Church is no object because if they come into your house, they'll even rob the church."

Church officials say they will install more surveillance equipment and alarms because of the burglary.
