Police are investigating a break-in and larceny at the Mount Merchardec Spiritual Baptist Church at Vance River Main Road in La Brea.

74-year-old Cecelia Etienne, of Vance River Main Road, La Brea, told police she secured the church around 4 pm on May 24th. However, when she returned around 1 pm on Sunday May 30th, she discovered that several items were missing—a DVD player, an amplifier, an equalizer, a gas tank, and a bag of curtains. 

The police processed the scene, but no workable prints were found.  Investigators believe the perpetrators may have entered the church through the back door.

PC Jimdar of the La Brea Police is investigating.
