Burglars Leave Neighbors In Christ Warehouse With Thousands In Damages
From Montgomery -- a group that helps crime victims becomes a victim of crime. Authorities say someone burglarized the warehouse of Neighbors in Christ stealing copper and leaving thousands of dollars in damage.
Neighbors in Christ is an organization that helps authorities clean up crime scenes. They also help clothe families and furnish homes for those in need. So everything from clothes to furniture is stuffed inside their warehouse. Because of the damages, about a quarter of all the items in can no longer be used.
Tim Tadlock with Neighbors in Christ came in earlier this week to a flooded warehouse, busted water pipes, a ransacked utility room and an open ceiling.
So what was the burglar looking for?
Garrett says the person who did it has been caught. While their name has not been released, Garrett says canine units were used to capture the burglar.
Garrett also recommends to businesses that they use a cage to cover their air conditioning units and make sure to lock any outside doors to prevent burglars from coming in.
