Sunday school offerings stolen
GIRARD — Officials at First United Methodist Church on North State Street told police someone stole $52.50 in Sunday school offering money from an unlocked safe on the church’s second floor.
Church officials think the theft took place Sunday, but was noticed Tuesday. The money was placed in the safe Sunday, but the safe was not locked until later that day when other offering money was placed in the safe.
Police were told a neatly dressed woman came to the church Sunday and asked for coats and gloves between the time of the money being put in the safe and the safe being locked. She was told to come back for the items but never did so. Reports say she was in the area of the unlocked safe.
