MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com)--Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. It's a simple lesson most of us learned in church. But one guy didn't get that.
New Bethel Temple Church is known for its outreach programs. After giving one man food and clothing, the same guy stole from the church.
Surveillance video shows him breaking into the church office overnight. He took thousands of dollars worth of stereo equipment, televisions, computers and DVD players.
Pastor Aaron Litzsey even remembers the man from a recent church function. "I just wouldn't have had a clue that the person we reached out our arms to in love, would have come back to burglarize the church in such a destructive way. So, when I got here, I was just disheartened."
The stolen equipment was going to be used for a tutoring and mentoring program at the church.
Call Crime Stoppers at (901) 528-CASH if you have information that can help police in this case.
