Screen_Shot_2014-12-08_at_7.54.30_PMIt’s not the first time we’ve reported on incidents involving thefts at a place of worship. Over the weekend, heartless thieves struck early morning on Saturday at the “Iglesia de Dios Evangelio” on Plum Street in Trial Farm. And while authorities have responded to the call, tonight the items stolen remain on the streets. Tito Garcia who owns and looks after the church’s sound system stopped by our studios pleading to the public to not purchase any stolen items and gave us an account of the incident.

”They open a three louvers from the left side of the church from the alter and he or whosoever came in just went away with part of our sound system from the church.”

“Specifically what did they take?”


Tito Garcia– Complainant


“They went with our amplifier and with our cross over, the amplifier is a 4000 watts brand new with an estimated price of $2000.00 and a cross over $400.00 brand new so that is a $2400.00 value that they went with.”

“Any suspects?”


Tito Garcia– Complainant


“Not as yet, no suspects, we went to the police and they are doing their proper investigations towards this situation.”

“So why is it that you came to the media? I understand that you want to tell the people that to be on the lookout for these items.”


Tito Garcia– Complainant


“Yes, it is really unfortunate that now even churches that have their sound systems work for it and some of them don’t have upfront to buy a system so normally what we do it to fundraise to buy a system just to get robbed, so I want to ask anybody out there especially the guys that deal with music; Djs. bands out that that if anybody just comes and offers them items that it might, to just give me a call.”


That number to call is 621-7938. The public is reminded that purchasing stolen items comes with a hefty fine if found guilty.
