Thieves target Montclair churches on weekend

MONTCLAIR churches have been targeted by criminals in a weekend, Saturday, 8 April and Palm Sunday, 9 April.

The first offence was reported by members of the Methodist Church on Montclair Road, when it was discovered on Sunday morning that the church hall door had been forcibly opened and various items were missing. “A flat screen monitor, computer tower and keyboard and mouse was taken on Saturday at about 4pm. The security guard contacted a church member the next day to inform him of the alarm going off the day before,” said Montclair SAPS communication officer, Capt Dereck Vijiam.

On Palm Sunday, the whole congregation of Sacred Heart Catholic Church were gathered outside the church premises for mass and procession, leaving the church grounds empty for less than an hour. Opportunistic criminals used the time to break into a car belonging to a church member and stole two tablets, a bag and clothing.
When the car owner returned from mass she noticed the window was smashed and items were missing. It is unknown who the thieves were.
