Church crook leaves blood as evidence

Published On: Dec 21 2012 09:23:17 PM CST

Authorities are looking for someone with fresh scars as part of the investigation into a church break-in.

Whoever broke into Kitt Swamp Christian Church, on Aurora Road near Ernul, went in through a broken window, according to Craven County deputies.

The glass shards badly cut the crook, based on the amount of blood left at the scene, investigators said.

The thief stole a 42” Phillips TV.

“When they break into the church, they’re not stealing from the people,” said church member Carolyn Nelson.

“They’re stealing from God.”

The break-in happened sometime Tuesday or Wednesday, according to deputies.

Crimestoppers is offering a reward.

Anyone with information is asked to call (252) 633-5141.
