WALKER, LA (WAFB)- Authorities are looking for the people who broke into a
church and made off with a 250-pound safe, along with the money inside it.
The Walker Police Department said the burglary happened
at the Walker Baptist Church on Florida Boulevard late Wednesday night or early
Capt. John Sharp said it appears the burglars got into
the church through a window that wasn't locked. They then broke into the
offices where the safe and cash box were kept.
Sharp added the safe is black steel and weighs between
250 and 300 pounds. It is about 2.5 feet tall, 2 feet wide and 2 feet deep. It
is believed they may have used a van or truck to get away with the safe.
It is unknown exactly how much money was taken.
