East Bakersfield church that feeds the hungry robbed

Robbery happened 2 days after community event

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Officials said computers were reportedly stolen from a local church that feeds the hungry in East Bakersfield earlier this week.

The church opened its doors to the community and Kern County leaders on Friday, Nov. 16, for the Community Vision Plan Unveiling Event.

Officials said that either Sunday night or Monday morning the church was burglarized and the staff computers were stolen along with other valuables.

On Nov. 5, Wesley United Methodist Church received 287 pounds of food from the Rotary Club of East Bakersfield to feed the poor through the church's food pantry.

Officials are asking anyone with information about the break in or the stolen items to contact the Kern County Sheriff's Department.
