Thief Steals 100-Year-Old Church Silver

The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office is working to find a man who broke into a Thompson’s Station church this week and stole several silver items that are more than 100-years-old. The burglary was captured on video and shows the man entering the Thompson’s Station Church of Christ at 4721 Columbia Pike in Thompson’s Station, TN around 8:40 p.m. Tuesday night (March 24, 2015) and remained inside the church until 9:50 p.m.

The stolen items include two silver antique communion trays, a silver antique pitcher, a silver communion cup and a silver antique platter. These items belonged to the church’s original congregation which dates back to the 1800’s. The church considers these items priceless.

The suspect is wearing a dark shirt, camo pants and a light colored cap with a dark band. Investigators believe the cap may be easily recognized. If you know this man or have information about this crime, call WCSO Detective Tameka Sanders at (615) 790- 5554 x 3228 or call Crime Stoppers at 615-794-4000. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest and indictment.
