    There's a special place in hell for people who steal from churches, and you can bet its not air conditioned, but it was the A/C unit that was targeted at The R.O.A.D. Church on Detroit's west side.

DETROIT (WJBK) -

We reported in June that air conditioner units had been gutted at a fish market and church on Detroit's west side. In both cases, those units were 30 feet off the ground.

Since then, there has been more theft at The R.O.A.D. Church, and it was caught on camera.

"We could not believe that someone would actually take a flower pot from the church," said Sonnie Day.

Video shows two men lifting the pot and carrying it away.

Recent surveillance videos from the fish market show a man attempting to steal a purse from a box truck and a carjacking in broad daylight.

"We need the police department to either actually be here out in the street standing in front of businesses, or at least the people that are running for mayor, come down here, talk to the people," said Alex Srour, who owns the market.

Srour has actually offered both sides of his sign for free to the first mayoral candidate that comes down to Schaefer and Keeler and has a conversation with the community.

Meanwhile, The R.O.A.D. Church has started a crime watch program. They are inviting the entire community to come out. They meet the first Monday of every month.
