Police: Thieves burglarize, vandalize Channelview church

CHANNELVIEW, Texas—Police are searching for thieves that continuously target a church in Channelview.

Recently, thieves broke into the Old River Terrace United Methodist Church and took several items, including a $500 projector.
The church has been hit several times over the last year, with the crooks breaking windows, leaving graffiti and causing thousands of dollars in damage.
“It makes me mad. Makes me want to come down here and start sleeping on the couch in this office with a baseball bat,  just dare them to come in and break in on me,” said Steven Mueller, usher.

Other items stolen from the church were a preschool van, a Boy Scout trailer and an empty safe.
