A church employee told the officer that when she arrived for work she saw many of the office doors had been forcibly opened.
The pastor's office door had been pried open and all desk drawers had been pulled out. The office safe near his desk had also been removed.
A safe located in a small closet off the media center had been been badly damaged in the effort to open it. All the safe's contents were gone, which included a brown bank bag containing approximately $8,000 in cash from Sunday's offering.
The responding officer photographed all damages and then turned the scene over to White police for processing.
Found wallet destroyed by Bush Hog
A Bartow County Sheriff's Office deputy was dispatched to 1923 Euharlee Road, Taylorsville, in reference to found property.
The homeowner said his dogs found a wallet that morning, adding that he did not know where they found it. According to the report, he never looked inside the wallet and threw it back into the yard for the dogs to chew on.
Later in the day, the man's neighbor came over to mow the area with a Bush Hog and hit the wallet. The neighbor found a Social Security card and turned it over to the homeowner.
The officer searched the area where the wallet was located and found a driver's license and other membership cards. The wallet and other papers were unable to be recovered, as they were destroyed by the Bush Hog.
