Burglars smashed out a window and busted into a building to steal flat screen TV's from a northside church.

The thieves scored three flat screens from the children's ministry area of the Friendship Church in the 14000 block of San Pedro.

Church leaders had just shown up for Sunday services when they discovered the break-in.

They say burglars used a rock found near the break-in site to crash out a window, then open a door to reach the TV's.

A church elder says spiritually the congregation believes the thieves are already forgiven, but that doesn't mean they don't want them caught.
