Sheriff Bryan Atkins said a warrant has been issued for the arrest of Brenda Ann Perry, of St. Joseph.
She is wanted after someone identified her from a surveillance video. Cameras at the Family Worship Center in Country Club Village captured video of a woman taking items parishioners coat pockets while the worship service was underway.
Authorities believe that woman was Perry. She faces a burglary charge as well as theft charges connected to the stolen credit card that was allegedly used at a nearby gas station.
Anyone with information about Perry's location is asked to call the St. Joseph Police Department at 816-271-4777 or the Andrew County Sheriff's office at 816-324-4114.
