Stolen items from Cape church recovered

| February 11, 2012

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) – It's not something that happens everyday. Stolen property was returned to the rightful owner. In this case, several items were recovered and given back to a Cape Girardeau Church.

About a month ago a break in at the Apostolic Promise Church in Cape Girardeau stunned the congregation.

It was so unnerving that church leaders went out immediately and installed a security system.

In mid-January church workers walked in to find ripped open boxes once filled with cash all over the floor.

Many other things were missing including sound and light board equipment, musical instruments, and several other electronics.

Fast forward to last week in Jefferson County, Missouri.

Surveillance video helped unlock the mystery.

"We were able to locate and arrest the two suspects," said Pevely Police Lt. Terry Thomas.

Both men were accused of several burglaries in the Jefferson County area.

Authorities were then lead to a storage facility in Pevely, MO.

Inside they found more than $10,000 in stolen property.

"We were totally surprised when we got to the storage locker and found big screen televisions, sound mixing boards, commercial mixing boards, and speakers and lighting," said Lt. Thomas.
