Cooper City Crook Steals From Church

A thief was captured on video removing a trailer filled with expensive items from a church in Cooper City.

The Square Root Church kept all of its supplies, children's toys and items in a trailer that was stolen from the building's parking lot.

Surveillance footage shows the thief hook up the trailer to a pickup truck and dive away down Southwest 55th Street.

Police say the incident was reported Friday night around 10:30 p.m.

"They can steal the trailer but they can't steal the Lord. We came in here and we worshiped and we did what we do because what we do is not based inside of an outfit," pastor Daniel Rios said. 

Rios said they just want their things back and their services to be back to normal, especially in time for Easter Sunday. The spiritual sanctuary welcomes over 200 people every Sunday.
