Car Stolen From Church Parking Lot During Sunday Service

Decatur police are also investigating auto thefts from a residence on Drexel Avenue and a parking lot on East Ponce.

A man told Decatur police his car was stolen Sunday, Nov. 11, from the parking lot at Thankful Baptist Church.

The man said he was inside the church attending services when the 2004 Mazda 6 was taken. He parked about 10:30 a.m. and discovered it missing at 12:15 p.m.

He said he left his keys in the church office and it's possible they were stolen, too.

Inside the car was the owner's Georgia drivers license, Suntrust Visa debit card, social security card, and birth certificate. Another man told the investigating officer a bag containing his work clothes was stolen from the choir room during the service.

Decatur police are also investigating these auto thefts:

  • Nov. 6 from a residence in the 300 block of Drexel Avenue. A 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee was taken. The owner said he usually leaves his vehicle unlocked to avoid a broken window in case somebody breaks into the vehicle.
  • Nov. 7 from a parking lot at 230 East Ponce de Leon Ave. A man said he parked his 2007 Mercedes 600 about 8 p.m. Nov. 6 and returned at 6:46 a.m. Nov. 7 to find the car missing.
