DADE COUNTY, Ga. - Dade County Sheriff's detectives are looking for a brazen thief. One not only willing to steal from a local house of worship but is also willing to deal with live electrical wires.

"When the pastor came out to check , even the units, the compressor was still trying to kick on so they didn't cut the power to the units, no wires, no electrical wires were cut," says Dade County Sheriff Ray Cross at the crime scene Thursday

Sheriff Cross says Berean Baptist Church on Sand Mountain's Brow Road was burglarized sometime between late Sunday and Wednesday evening. Cross believes the suspect likely has a background in heating and air conditioning, and was only looking for one thing out of the church's six air conditioning units, a precious metal to sell.
