Copper wiring and breaker boxes valued at $1,200 were reportedly stolen from the New Life Christian Center, 3336 Wrightsboro Road, this past weekend.

Jimmy Lee Harris of the center told police someone had broken into the building between 10 p.m. Friday and 2:15 p.m. Sunday, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s report.

Deputies noted the metal paneling had been removed from the rear wall and a hole cut into the wall for entry, the report says. There was also a hole cut through the drywall going from one section of the building to the other.

Police also found a black-and-yellow jacket, gloves, pack of Newport cigarettes and a Pall Mall cigarette butt inside the building that Harris said was not there Friday.

If you believe crime show

If you believe crime show t.v. and novels, the police would take prints from the jacket and gloves and a DNA saliva sample from the cigarette butt. Yeah, right.

You mean you didn't hear

You mean you didn't hear about the gold teath being taken Seen It? It was a little while back and no one thought it was too newsworthy. "Smaller" crimes never make the bigger news but are on the crimes by zip code and such. Having the gold stolen right out of your teath is no big deal to anybody except the person missing his teath. They sell CSI kits now so if you want fingerprints and such you may have to lift them yourself, we do.
