The Center For The Bahai Faith was burglarized sometime between Wednesday night and Thursday afternoon.
Members tell KKTV 11 News that in between meetings held Wednesday and Thursday, someone had broken in and destroyed much of their property.
Members believe the crooks got in through a back window, which was found broken.
According to church members, the crooks stole $100, a set of drums, a VCR, a DVD player and speakers. They flipped chairs and book shelves; they even stacked the stairwell with chairs and other items.
Members say they found a bat that likely was used to ransack the place.
The floor was completely covered in a white substance, in which members say was from a fire extinguisher they had downstairs.
The group says their faith is about love of all people and they are not looking for revenge; they just hope the crooks will change their lives.
Those of the Bahai faith don't accept donations from people outside of their religion, but will accept help Friday at 8 a.m. to help clean up the Center. The Center is located on 1622 Rainier Drive.
If you have any information on this incident, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
