Georgia deputies release photos of church burglary suspect wearing cross

A woman wearing a large cross necklace is being sought in a burglary inside a Georgia church that was captured by a surveillance camera.

The Hall County Sheriff’s Office on Friday released photos taken from the camera inside Corinth Baptist Church in Gainesville and asked for the public’s help in identifying the suspect, Fox 5 Atlanta reported.

The photos show a woman with a cross around her neck. She has on a dress and her hair is in a ponytail.

Deputies say she broke into the church overnight on Aug. 25 and stole musical instruments and electronics worth about $3,000, the station reported.

“She looks like a normal person,” Deputy Stephen Wilbanks told WXIA-TV. “She doesn’t fit the profile of our typical burglar that we see.”

No one knows how she got into the church. No locks or windows were broken.

Pastor Chris Swan told the Gainesville Times he doesn’t believe the woman is a member of the congregation.

He said the items were discovered missing the following Sunday morning.

“When we went to do (a) sound check and things of that nature, we realized one thing was gone and then two things were gone,” he told the paper.
