The theft included $200,000 in cash and $400,000 in checks. The money was located in the safe of the Joel Osteen church prior to the theft. Church officials reported the theft on Monday and told churchgoers that they should keep an eye on their bank accounts, reports the Associated Press.

“Lakewood Church is working in conjunction with the Houston Police Department to investigate this matter,” Donald Lloff Jr., a member of the Joel Osteen church, told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “We do not want to compromise the investigation by commenting at this time.”
