FRANKLIN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -
A pastor and his congregation in the Shoals
are celebrating the recovery of some of the items stolen from them in a
burglary last week.
stole more than $20,000 worth of music equipment
from the Pleasant Hill Methodist Church, including some instruments considered
to be family heirlooms.
Pastor Darryl Whitehead said he was thrilled
when he was told a pawn shop in the Huntsville area had purchased what appeared
to be the stolen items hours after the burglary happened.
Whitehead said the church has insurance and
the equipment would eventually be replaced, but he said you can't put a price
on some of the instruments, including a mandolin which has been passed down in
one of his church members' families for years.
After news of the burglary first broke, an
employee at a Huntsville pawn shop thought he may have purchased some of the
items and called the sheriff's department. The mandolin and a few guitars were
returned to the church Wednesday.
Investigators are still working to locate the
man who sold the items at the pawn shop. Names have not been released at this
