Police are investigating a break-in at the Mt Merchardec Spiritual Baptist Church in La Brea where several items, including a bag of curtains, were stolen.

Cecelia Etienne, 74, told police she secured the church at Vance River Main Road in La Brea around 4 pm on May 24 and went away. However, when she returned around 1 pm on Sunday she discovered a DVD, an amp, an equalizer, a gas tank and a bag of curtains missing.

The police said entry was gained through a back door, but no workable prints were not found.
