Georgia church robber: 'Sorry but I'm poor'

ELLENWOOD, Ga. (AP) - November 24, 2009 A note scrawled on the wall said: "Sorry but I'm poor. Forgive me Lord."

The Rev. Roger Davis tells WSB-TV that expensive equipment including microphones and a laptop containing important records were stolen over the weekend from Berean Baptist Church. The robber broke locks and the church's safe, but it was empty.

It was the fourth time the church in Ellenwood, southeast of Atlanta, has been robbed in two years.

Davis joked he's considering putting up a note of his own telling potential robbers to call him instead and the church will take up a collection for them.
