LANCASTER - Donald Estepp doesn't know who broke into Pleasant Grove Christian Church on July 28th, stealing the church's safe and causing $1,842 in damages.
But Estepp, Pleasant Grove's treasurer, will tell you the type of person he thinks committed the crime. "A person with no conscious, no morals," he said.
Garrard County Deputy Sheriff Ronald Lamb says the church on Ky. 34 was burglarized around 2 a.m. July 28, but all the thief or thieves got was a safe with historical documents and church membership records inside.
Lamb says he suspects only one person broke into the church, because the safe was dragged from the pastor's study and through the kitchen, tearing up the floor tile. "It was heavy enough, had there been more than one person, they probably would have picked it up (and carried it out)," said Lamb.
