"Sometimes churches can be targets, but we all like to think when you go to a church, your donation is going to be safe and that people would have the respect to not break into a church,” said Bothell Police Department Capt. Mike Johnson.
Police said they don’t have a suspect and there isn’t any surveillance video that they know of.
Immediately after the theft, the church increased its security.
