“They cut the wires nicely, they cut the tubing with a tubing cutter, Brown said. "They had to know what they were doing. It had to be at least two, because one person would not have been able to pick it up."

“You are wrong and staying on this path will only get you one place,” Brown said of the thief. “And we don’t want you to go there. Our desire is to even see him at our church one day.”
