Church trailer stolen in Perry Hall

April 05, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A trailer with all of the goods of a fledging church - its television and video equipment, children's toys, chairs and tables, and Bibles - was reported stolen yesterday from a shopping center parking lot in Perry Hall.

The Rev. Kent Stewart, pastor of the nondenominational Church of White Marsh, said he had permission to park the trailer at the shopping center at Belair and Silver Spring roads and had checked on it Saturday afternoon.

It had been secured with locks and chains, he said, so that no one could move the trailer - which Stewart tows with a van to his church's services Sundays and Tuesdays in the cafeteria of Perry Hall High School.

Baltimore County police are investigating the trailer's disappearance, said Parkville Precinct Officer David Hartman.

The small congregation, which met for services yesterday, is crestfallen, Stewart said. He estimated the value of the trailer and its contents at $6,000.

"It definitely sets us back a bit," Stewart said. "But we trust in God that he will provide whatever we need to move on."
