After the arrest of the four burglars who robbed Walker Baptist Church, we found out the burglars had connections to the church.

Forensic evidence, which included fingerprints, helped police nab the suspects.

The four men are accused of breaking into the church and stealing a safe, along with some cash.

Ray McCon, the church’s Minister of Education, says it's saddening to know that someone they trusted did this to them.

"Unfortunately, there were people, several of them who had visited here,” stated McCon. “One (of the suspects) had long-term connections through family here. We felt betrayed."

McCon said that they will continue to pray for the men, and hope that they will not do this again.
