KANNAPOLIS ó A man and young woman visiting a Kannapolis church to talk about mission work discovered, following a Sunday night service, that they’d been robbed.
According to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, the people were visiting Enochville Church of God from Oklahoma while conducting a missionary tour.
After the Sunday night service, the two missionaries, Johannes Steya, 54, and Elizabeth Steya, 17, discovered a number of their belongings, including a blood sugar meter, were missing. They estimated their loss at more than $1,100, Sheriff’s Capt. John Sifford said.
“They turned around, and someone took the credit card reader and Elizabeth Steya’s purse,” Sifford said.
Also in the teen’s purse were a cell phone, insulin and credit cards.
A church member recalled seeing a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot. The vehicle was an orange or red older pickup, possibly a GMC or Chevrolet.
Investigators ask anyone with information about the thefts to call the Sheriff’s Office at 704-216-8700.
