Houston Police investigators are looking for clues after it appears someone broke into a safe at Lakewood Church and walked away with nearly 6-hundred thousand dollars in donations. Two hundred thousands of it is believed to be cash.
The donations were from services on Saturday March 8th and Sunday March 9th.
The heist wasn’t discovered until 8:30 a.m. Monday morning when an employee of Lakewood Church and an off duty Harris County Sheriff’s Officer working security noticed the break in.
Right now investigators think the heist happened sometime between 2:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon and Monday morning when it was discovered.
The donations were from services PM Saturday March 8th and Sunday March 9th and included donations made by checks and credit cards along with the cash donations.
Lakewood is asking anyone who attended services this weekend and made an offering by check or credit card to pay close attention to those accounts and immediately report any suspicious activity.
Lakewood stresses this was not a data breach but says the theft was limited to donations made in the actual services. The church sent this email to members notifying them of the theft.
