Highland Park UMC Burglarized
If you see someone skipping down Mockingbird Lane carrying $20,000 worth of tech equipment, give the folks at Highland Park United Methodist Church a call. It’s their stuff.
Over the past two months, thieves have stolen a variety of computer and techie items from the church, including:
- one $10,000 lighting controller
- one $5,000 Apple desktop computer
- two $225 Blu-Ray players
- two $300 computer monitors
Oh and they nabbed a computer keyboard and a surge protector as well.
For all the things the thief took, he forgot one item: the church security cameras! On Sept. 28, security cameras caught a white male, 5’8″ to 5’11”, weighing approximately 150 pounds, with short brown hair, walking into a church balcony and walking out with a $5,000 Mac Pro G5.
Throw a beard on that guy, and it sounds like I robbed the place. But I have a computer, and I’m not entirely sure what good a $10,000 lighting controller would be in a one-bedroom apartment.
Anyway, a witness saw a similar-looking man in a silver 2007 Mazda II (I drive a Volkswagen, btw.), so if you see me driving around SMU in a silver Mazda, give the cops a shout.

Robberies involve violence or the threat of violence while stealing. The story above is not a series of robberies. These are burglaries. Big difference.
@ Dirty S.-
Thanks. I was working on a few different things this morning, and my internal dictionary must’ve clicked off.
HP police caught the guy. Story on Fox 4.
So where’s our stuff? Oh, and does this mean the guy is going to hell or do we have to forgive him and drop the charges?
