The caller stated that children’s Christmas presents had been stolen from within the Church. Upon arrival of the Deputy a search for evidence ensued, the Deputy located camera footage in the area.

More camera footage from the Parker area is being viewed to determine if anything else may be located.
Rodney Clinton – Treasurer of the First Baptist Church stated: “This is a real shame, if the people need help, they should have just asked, the Church is always willing to assist families in need. These gifts were to be delivered about the Parker area to children”.
