Visalia Salvation Army was broken into overnight
VISALIA, Calif. (KFSN) -- The Visalia Salvation Army was broken into overnight. 15-thousand dollars' worth of electronics was taken. Visalia Police say the crooks stole computers, musical instruments, speakers, a safe and an overhead projector used for church services. Police believe several people were involved.
Pastor Jesus Quintanilla with the Visalia Salvation Army said, "I never think we're going to be violated in that way and so I was really surprised I was really surprised I wasn't expecting that."
Sgt. Amy Watkins said, "An operation like the Salvation Army this is a sad deal because the operation of a Salvation Army is to truly help those that are in need and down on their luck."
Visalia Police say a large, dark-colored SUV and a light-colored, full-size truck were used in the theft.
