Caught in The Act: Thieves break into woman's car while she is praying in church

Columbus Police are looking for cold-hearted crooks who broke into a minivan while it was parked in a church lot during Sunday worship.

"People who are stealing really don't care if it's a place of worship or not," said Rev. John Romig, with Gender Road Christian Church.

The owner of the vehicle, an 80-year-old woman, was attending services at the church when the crime happened.

Church surveillance cameras Sunday morning captured a car that appears to be a 2000's Hyundai Sonata, drive up to the locked mini-van. A man wearing a black ball cap and tennis shoes, jeans and light colored jacket, got out of the car and can be seen smashing the window.

The man grabs several multi-colored bags and jumps in the car which then takes off.

The crooks may be disappointed by the loot they got.

"Some music sheets and family heirlooms," Romig said

Romig says no other cars in the lot were targeted by the crooks. Anyone with information is asked to call Columbus Police at 614-645-4545.
