PLANT CITY, Fla. (AP) - A southwest Florida church is asking a burglar to return its priceless possessions - a registry of marriages, funerals and baptisms.
The records were stolen from a safe last Sunday at First Presbyterian Church of Plant City just as the church is about to celebrate its 125th anniversary. The safe was fire proof, but wasn't locked. There was no money inside.
Rev. David Delph said the burglary saddened him because the church would have helped anyone who needed money.
