Church burglars steal gift cards before Easter Sunday

| April 3, 2012

A local Lutheran school was burglarized just as they were preparing for Easter Sunday service.

During the preparation, some people noticed a window on the side of the school smashed, a closet broken into and valuable gift cards missing.

Stealing from a church the weekend before Easter.

It's a cruel proposition but one Messiah Lutheran Church and school is faced with after a burglary this past weekend.

The bandits broke a window on the side of the school and snatched gift cards the school uses for fundraisers.

Sergeant Jeri Roeder with the Lincoln Police Department said, "Once inside, they forced entry to a locked closet in the office where they stole an undetermined number of gift cards to approximately 95 different businesses."

All of the cards have been activated, meaning as soon as the thieves use them, police believe they'll be able to track them down.
