Burglars Strike At Local Funeral Home, Reward Offered For Their Arrest

February 23, 2020

A local funeral home is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of the people responsible for burglarizing the business.

Mike Atwood, owner of Faith Chapel North at 1000 South Highway 29 said someone broke into a storage building last Thursday after the close of business. The burglary is under investigation by the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.

“There were two people. The lone person in the pictures came at around 2:30 – 3 p.m. while we were open for business and cased the place,” Atwood said. “He and a second person came back around 6:30 p.m. and broke in.”

Atwood said the vehicle caught on camera appears to a Lincoln pickup.

Anyone with information on the burglary is asked to call the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office at (850) 436-9620.

    This is terrible! How can someone rob a Funeral home! How low can a person be? One day you may need a place like this. Karma will get him! Hopefully sooner then later!

    License plate in clear view. I guess it couldn’t be “enhanced” enough to be readable? Agree with others that being a somewhat rare model truck might make it a lot easier to track down the owner.

    I was born and raised in Pensacola. I’ve spent most of my life here. In the past 10 years, the level of depravity has increased beyond my imagination. I could name a cause, but that is another discussion. I will offer up this. Expect it to only get worse.

    Someone cut the catalytic converter out of a church bus on Neal Rd this week too. It’s such a shame that people don’t seem to have a conscience anymore.

    Idiots. May God change their hearts or their location, or whatever He decides is best.

    Those trucks are fairly rare, it seems to me they could do a DMV search to see where to closest ones are registered.

    Sounds like they didn’t have an alarm system for the storage shed. Did they steal anything that they could try and sell?
