Thieves target East County church

| February 8, 2012

For the second time in less than two weeks, someone has visited Rivercrest Community Church in East Multnomah County, but not for worship services.

Sometime between 9 p.m. Monday, Feb. 6, and 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 7, seven heating and air conditioning units were stolen from the church’s property in the 3200 block of Northeast 148th Avenue. The units, which were installed three years ago, had an estimated value of $9,000 each.

“We really got clobbered,” said Len Lukens, head trustee for the church. “And from a church. This is God’s sanctuary. Churches are a comfort zone and that’s been violated.”

There were eight commercial condensers on cement pads outside the church. One unit remained when the theft was discovered Monday morning.
