[April 20, 2010]  TACOMA, Wash. (AP) -- Tacoma police said thieves stole copper pipes from a church. KIRO-TV reported that members of Grace Missionary Baptist Church were preparing for a men's breakfast Friday night when they noticed the toilets weren't flushing. There was also no water from the faucets.

Parishioner Dan Gardner said they could hear water somewhere. But when he looked under the church's crawl space, he discovered that all the copper pipes had been taken.

Church members scrambled to get water for breakfast and portable toilets.
