Piggy Banks Stolen From Texas Church

This really shows how horrible some people are,
I mean stealing....a piggy bank, ...from a child,...
:shaking head in disbelieve

SAN ANGELO, Texas - Besides taking a laptop computer and some petty cash, whoever broke into Trinity Lutheran Church also raided piggy banks the church's kindergarten and first-grade Sunday school classes were filling to donate to a Lutheran children's ministry.

Seven-year-old Jacob Haire's blue piggy with green eyes containing a few dollars was stolen.

"They just took my whole piggy bank," Jacob said, "and the rest they threw on the ground and broke."

One or more burglars broke into the church the night of July 21 and took or broke eight banks, each containing no more than $8.

"They didn't get very much," said Bobbie Haire, Jacob's mother and Trinity Lutheran's secretary. "The killer to me was (the) piggy banks."

Robert Budewig, the church's senior pastor, said there was also damage to several doors and a Coke machine. He said that the money taken probably amounted to about $200, Budewig said.

Police have no hard evidence in the case, said Sgt. Bill Mabe in the San Angelo police criminal-investigations division.
