Another Church Hit By Thieves

Church thieves have struck again. This time at the Prairie Plains Baptist Church. According to a report by Deputy Daryl Welch, church pastor Jimmy Parting stated that he went to the church last Saturday and found a back door open. He went in and noticed the doors to the cabinets open and thought a pest control company employee had been in to spray for bugs.  However, when he returned on Sunday, he found the overhead projector was missing. The thieves, according to the deputy’s report, stood on the pews to remove the projector, which is valued at $500. Sheriff’s investigator Chad Partin is investigating the incident. This makes the 5th church building in the county that thieves have broken into in recent days.
