Thieves steal $1,200 in items from EL Christian Ministry
The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public’s help in identifying two suspects whom the agency said broke into an eastern county nonprofit on two separate occasions Monday morning, stealing nearly $1,200 in clothing items.
Deputies said the incidents took place at 6:30 a.m. and four hours earlier at East Lincoln Christian Ministry, located on Catawba Burris Road in Denver.
Video surveillance at the organization recorded the suspects pulling up to the facility in a dark-colored Chevrolet S-10, the Sheriff’s Office said.
The backside of the vehicle contained a took box, deputies added.
After the duo loaded merchandise onto the truck and left, they returned to the property later that morning, traveling in a different vehicle, according to an agency press release.
Detectives described the second vehicle as a white Cadillac STS with chrome-factory wheels.
Deputies said they estimated the total amount of items stolen in the incidents to be $1,200, most of which included winter coats.
One of the suspects appeared to be a white female, “small in stature,” wearing a T-shirt and pants with a camouflage pattern, the release said.
The woman also wore a ponytail and dark-colored prescription glasses, surveillance showed.
Deputies offered little information about the second suspect, also a white female, they said. She is described as younger in age with dark hair.
Anyone with information about the break-ins or suspects is asked to contact Det. Mark Stamey at (704) 732-9050
or Crime Stoppers at (704) 736-8909
Callers may remain anonymous, and any tips leading to an arrest may receive a reward of up to $1,000.
