DELAWARE COUNTY, Ohio (WCMH) -The search is on for the person who stole equipment from a church valued at more than $130,000.  

Ethos Church is missing its audio and video equipment.  Authorities said someone stole the equipment Wednesday morning. Pastor Jordan Smucker said he’s in shock.

“Absolutely. We were definitely Disappointed. In one sense, you’re like, ‘Did this actually happen?’” said Smucker.

And now the bigger question is who did this?  Smucker nor Delaware County Sheriff’s deputies know that answer.

“All of our speakers, microphones, cables, cameras, projectors, projection screens, microphones,” Smucker said. 

It happened Wednesday morning.

“We have two trailers. One of them keeps all of our kids’ supplies in it. The other has our audio visual lighting supplies in it. That’s the trailer that was stolen which has most of our expensive equipment in it,” said Smucker. 

They hold service at Olentangy Meadows Elementary. The church is relatively new.  Despite the loss Pastor Smucker says he isn’t harboring any bitter feelings.
