Church safe theivery -- Horry County, SC

A church congregation in Horry County is out of an estimated $15,000 after an employee found the cash missing from a safe.

Officers with the Horry County Police Department were dispatched Dec. 14 to the Catholic Church of St. James on Academy Drive in Conway following reports of a larceny. Upon arrival, a complainant told police $15,000 had been stolen out of a safe in the church's administration office.

Police were informed only six people knew the combination and location of a key to the safe. The suspects left the safe open, without signs of forced entry, after taking the money. The key, police found, was still inserted into the safe's lock.
