Megachurch thieves make off with $600,000

Joel Osteen is a pastor at a gigantic church in Houston, Texas. The megachurch service sees tens of thousands of people at services each week and the services are televised as well. With so many people in attendance at services each week, you can bet some huge money is donated.

Thieves reportedly made off with $600,000 in donations from parishioners recently. The money was in the form of cash and checks and was placed in the safe inside Osteen's office. There was reportedly around $200,000 in cash and about $400,000 in checks reports The Examiner.

Some envelopes that have credit card details from people that donated were also stolen. A church employee and an off-duty sheriff's deputy reported the theft. A church spokesperson says that the money is fully insured.

The church is also warning those who donated money recently to watch their accounts for fraudulent activity. As of now, no arrests have been made in the theft. It's unclear if there are any evidence or suspects at this time. The theft was made sometime between Sunday afternoon and Monday morning.

There is no indication at this time that it was an inside job, though no word of a break-in has been made either. Perhaps more clues will be offered by police at the investigation continues.

If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
