Press Release from Donald E. Craig, Sheriff
Pickens County Sheriff’s Office
On Sunday, April 17, 2011, our office received a report that a local church had been broken into. After an investigation, it was determined that someone entered into the church over the weekend by breaking a door. The individual, or individuals, then removed several expensive sound equipment items from the facility. Detectives from our office were able to locate several clues and will continue to work on this case from all available leads.
Please remain vigilant in monitoring your businesses, homes and churches to ensure that you do not become a victim of similar acts. We will continue to extra patrol our churches while we continue this investigation. If you have any information that you believe would assist in determining who these offenders may be, please contact the Criminal Investigations Division at 706-253-8935.
