A laptop computer was discovered missing from the sanctuary at Westview Church of Christ on Vaughn Bridge Road Wednesday morning after Hartselle police received a report of a window being broken on the west side of the building.

HPD investigator Lt. Justin Barley confirmed that a window of the church was broken but declined further comment pending completion of a preliminary investigation.

Church elder Jim Corum said a brick was used to break the window, but he questioned

anyone being able to go through it because of shards of glass left in the window frame.

“Entry could’ve occurred some other way, possibly through an unlocked rear door,” he said. “What we do know is there were no signs of vandalism inside the building and the only thing found missing so far is the minister’s laptop.”
