MARYDEL, Md.– The music has been taken right out of the First Baptist Church in Marydel. Literally.

The Caroline County Sheriff's Office said three electric guitars, a keyboard, seven speakers and mixer equipment with a combined worth of nearly $7,000 were recently stolen from the church during a burglary.

The thefts have left many in the community shocked and wondering who would steal from a church.

"I am really surprised," said Lisa Carroll, who lives next door to the church. "For someone to take something from a church, I really think that's messed up. I am concerned, because I guess we are going to have to start locking our doors at night."

"It's hard to believe that somebody would have the audacity to invade a church," said John Gates, also of Marydel.

Gates said this type of crime usually does not happen in his small town.

"It don't matter if they stole a nickel off the tray, stealing from a church is not within my parameters of being a good person," Gates said.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the Sheriff's Office's Criminal Investigation Division at (410) 479-4123.
