Members of Parris Church, near Gideon, said a door was forced open and thieves took a number of items, including a Fender bass guitar and case, a Peavey amp, a Washburn acoustic guitar, monitor speakers, an Alvarez acoustic guitar, a red Epiphone electric guitar and more.

Andy Crow told deputies a vehicle apparently crashed into his shop building and left the scene. Parts of the vehicle were left behind.
