Police say someone broke into a central Pennsylvania church and made off with $1,000 in gift cards that were supposed to go to the needy for help buying groceries.

Investigators say the gift cards were taken from Calvary United Methodist Church in Lemoyne, Cumberland County on Thursday or Friday.

Pastor Curt Dotson says the church gives gift cards to those in need to help buy food. He says whoever stole the cards knew what they were after.

Cash and more gift cards were left in the cabinet.

Dotson is asking the burglar to return the cards, no questions asked.
