IMPERIAL, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Thieves broke into St. John Catholic Church last Wednesday and stole nearly $32,000 worth of possessions, including 888 gift cards. But the exterior door to the church was not tampered, possibly implying an insider may be connected to the crime.
Investigators said the first place targeted was a desk drawer with a master key. Retta Nahlik of St. John Catholic Church suspects the master key was used because the door was not damaged. The thief also used an object to pry open a pad lock that secured a metal cabinet with 888 gift cards which were stolen.
