Musical instruments, electronics stolen from North Hall church
Surveillance photos show a suspect in the burglary of Corinth Baptist Church on Thompson Bridge Road in North Hall County.

A burglary suspect entered a North Hall Baptist church last week and left with musical instruments and electronics, according to authorities.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office investigators are hoping to identify what appears to be a woman in surveillance photos of the burglary at Corinth Baptist Church on Thompson Bridge Road. She was wearing a dress, cross necklace and had her hair in a ponytail.

Investigators said the suspect entered the church between midnight and 6 a.m. Aug. 25 “with no sign of forced entry.”

“Items taken include musical instruments and electronics with a total value in excess of $3,000,” Deputy Stephen Wilbanks wrote in a news release.

The Rev, Chris Swan said he was unsure how the woman entered the church, but he said he does not believe the person is a member of the congregation.

Swan said headphones, a tablet, mixers and other items were discovered missing on the following Sunday morning.

“When we went to do sound check and things of that nature, we realized one thing was gone and then two things were gone,” he said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office’s criminal investigations division at 770-531-6879 or use the anonymous tipline at 770-503-3232.
