It was a fairly routine Wednesday night at the Central Church of Christ in Wilmington, until a man was spotted coming out of the nursery room in the basement of the church after stealing a DVD player. The man then ran out of the church, but he was not alone. Two members of the congregation then took off after him, walking down Carolina Avenue. The pursuit continued with help from WWAY reporter John Rendleman. About four blocks away from the church the alleged thief was spotted carrying the silver DVD player. Once he knew he was spotted, he then took off running down Creecy Avenue. The man then made a quick left onto 21st Street. He kept running and then veered left down an alleyway. Wilmington police were called to the Central Church of Christ with a service going on behind the closed doors. Wilmington police would like your help if you can help identify the man in this video. In turn, the church just might be able to get back their DVD player. The apparent thief was wearing dark pants and a short sleeved black and white shirt. He is about 6 feet tall. If you know who he is, call the Wilmington police at 910-343-3600.
