DELANO, MN Wright County authorities are investigating a theft from a safe at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church in Delano.
The theft of money was reported to the Wright County Sheriff’s Office July 31 just after 9 p.m. Pry marks were observed on the safe when counters came to count and process funds from a church service earlier that day.
No damage was found on exterior church doors or interior doors leading to where the safe is, according to the sheriff’s office. No suspect information is known at this time and authorities processed the scene for evidence.
A loss of $510 in cash, plus an unknown amount from the collection plate was reported. A call to a Mt. Olive Lutheran Church representative was not returned as of press time.
The sheriff’s office asks if anyone noticed anything suspicious that day in that area to call (763) 682-1162 and ask for the investigations unit.
