A church was all set up to hold an event over the weekend, but someone stole the party equipment before they could.

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers says that on Sunday morning between 2:30 a.m. and 11 a.m., someone stole rental equipment provided by Tacos La Isla & Party Rentals. This happened at the church located at 11431 Palm Beach Blvd.

Iglesia De Dios was holding a party event. The suspects stole close to $5,000 worth of equipment, including a large commercial canopy tent, folding rental tables, and chairs, that had been set up ahead of the event.

Felipe Sosa Ipzep is the pastor at Iglesia De Dios. “Well, we do not react badly. I simply believe that the people who did this were due to a lack of knowledge of what they are doing. Perhaps they think they are doing well, but stealing is wrong,” said Ipzep.

Crime Stoppers needs your holding finding who did this. If you have any information, you are being asked to call SWFL Crime Stoppers 1-800-780-TIPS (8477) or go online.  You can also submit tips through their app.
