According to a police update Monday afternoon, worshipers at the Bethany Church in Wyckoff are hoping that thieves who stole expensive audio equipment from the church will come clean, and return the stolen merchandise.
On September 6, the Church’s Pastor reported an electronic mixing sound board and a microphone had been stolen from a closet in the Church, Wyckoff Police Chief Benjamin Fox said in a recent release. The equipment, which the Church uses during musical parts of its services, is worth $3,700, police said.
Cops have had a difficult time identifying the time frame of the burglary, since the equipment is not used every week, Fox said.
But, there were “no signs of forced entry,” into the usually-locked Church, or into the closet where the equipment was kept, Fox said. Though police had, “no suspects,” as of Monday afternoon, they suspect the items were taken by, “someone who had legitimate access to the Church at some point,” Fox said.
A call to Bethany was unanswered, but Fox said the Church is hoping there is closure to this case soon.
“The Church would really like to get its equipment back,” he said.
