On God’s property? Cars broken into while victims attended church service | Crime
The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department is trying to figure out who’s responsible for breaking into two vehicles in the parking lot of a church.
The report said on Oct. 14 officers responded to the Christian Fellowship Baptist Church located at 4621 Highway 321 in reference to a larceny.
Upon arrival, deputies met with the 60-year-old victim who advised officers that she had been in church since 10 a.m.
Deputies say when the woman returned to her vehicle after service, she noticed that the passenger’s side front door glass had been broken and a bag had been removed from her floorboard.
According to sheriff’s deputies, they spoke with a second victim who stated that she arrived at the church around 11 a.m.
The report said the second victim stepped outside during the sermon around 11:30 a.m. and placed her purse inside her vehicle. When the woman returned to her vehicle after service, around 12:15 p.m., her purse and other items were missing.
