CARTERSVILLE, Ga. -

One Bartow County congregation was stunned to discover one of their own had broken into the church safe on Memorial Day and went on a shopping spree.

That person entered the Grace Baptist Church on Old Cass White Road in Cartersville and took several thousands of dollars of offerings made to the church at the service just a day earlier as well as several credit cards.

Police were able to track down that person and arrest them by using surveillance video made during the shopping spree using the church's credit cards.

Three people have been charged in connection to the theft.
