Thieves Hit Church Three Times in 10 days: Minister



    Peter Mulinge, office manager for the Oak Hill Church of Christ in Escondido, checks out a door where the hinges were taken off during a burglary Monday night.

    Minister Shane Sullivan is having a hard time saying the Forgiveness Prayer of late.

    For the third time in 10 days, Sullivan said, thieves broke into the Oak Hill Drive Church of Christ on Tuesday night, this time taking computers, an amplifier, microphones, a projector, guitars and a television from the south central Escondido church.

    Some of the equipment had recently been purchased to replace items stolen on Sept. 2 and 3, the dates of the first two break-ins, the minister said.
