Because the Lord forgives and forgets when man cannot, we bring you the story of a famished thief from Maine who vandalized an entire church while searching for food. Members of the Maine church declared that the property damage would surely take its toll on the entire community.
Maine Church Says Thief Stole Frozen Pizza and Ice-Cream
On Tuesday, members of Maine’s Old Orchard Beach United Methodist Church contacted the authorities to report a burglary.
Sheriff’s deputies determined that sometime between Monday and Tuesday morning, an unknown individual broke into the church, vandalized the kitchen, and ran away with food.
According to the members of the church who discovered the whole thing, the church doesn’t mind about the food, but the kitchen and food pantry has been damaged beyond repair.
Apparently, after making his way inside the kitchen, the thief tore down the pantry door and broke a couple of chairs just to gain access to the food stash.
If that wasn’t enough, according to a church member, the thief also broke a desk drawer, stomped on a wall clock, and threw several bibles on the ground before leaving the premises.
Interestingly enough, according to a Maine church spokesperson, they don’t care much about the missing food, but the mess the robber made before leaving is going to cost the community.
In a recent Facebook post, the Old Orchard Beach United Methodist Church wrote that the establishment’s security would be upgraded.
Furthermore, they’ve made an appeal to the individual or individuals who broke into the church, saying that the authorities have already begun an investigation.
They ended the post in a lighter mode by saying that they will be praying for the soul of the thief.
Based on the police report, the thief removed three boxes of frozen pizza and a tub of ice cream.
