WSAZ.com found that while pastors and deacons still pray for their enemies, they're using whatever means necessary to protect their property.

“The church put this $1,500 security fence up after they came in and took the copper off the fittings of this air conditioner, and then this one,” said Kevin Adkins, a deacon at the Westmoreland Church of Christ.

And he says that thief who appeared to have struck twice within a week to steal copper fittings off two air conditioners will get maybe $10 to $20 at a recycling center. But, he says it's costing the church $3,000 to fix the fittings.

After the first theft, Adkins set up a night time “stealth cam” used in deer hunting that overlooks the air conditioners.
