Thief Steals From Church

Members of a rural Johnston County church were temporarily without water service last week.

A thief stole the water pump from the Bentonville Disciple Church at 8566 Devil’s Racetrack Road outside of Four Oaks.

On June 5th, a church member pulled up at the church and noticed a door to the well house was open.  They walked over to the well and noticed the water pump and had stolen.  The pump was valued at $250.

The incident is under investigation by the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office.
