Church Suffers Frequent Burglaries

A person or persons have stolen cooling units from Mount Carmel Baptist Church at Lauderdale multiple times.

Church clerk Alice Mosley said members discovered the latest theft Tuesday morning.

"We cannot to afford to buy air conditioners. This makes the 5th time that air conditioners have been stolen from this church," said Mosley. "And we are asking who is doing it to please stop and why do you would you want to steal from God's house?"

Mosley says the church is only asking that those responsible stop stealing from the church.

Anyone with information about the burglaries and stolen air conditioners may report it to Crimestoppers at 601-485-1860, or Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department at 601-482-9802.

    Firstly, I'm sorry this act has been done. Justice will be done, but it's not our place to say what will happen & definitely not to say they will burn. Right now, I guess you'd say, they aren't "burning" since they have your A/Cs. And this has happened - how many - 5 times? Something is just not right about this picture. Sounds like they are pros or it's an inside job. Somebody just knows too much to keep doing something over & over at the same place & NOT get caught!
