MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - An Alabama nonprofit devoted to helping crime victims has found itself the victim of a burglary.

Montgomery-based Neighbors in Christ replaces locks and windows at the homes of burglary victims and has a ministry of helping crime victims and their families.

The Montgomery Advertiser reports (https://on.mgmadv.com/1njzwrj) that Neighbors in Christ keeps donated items in a storage building on Fairlane Drive, which was targeted by thieves on March 3.

The suspects ruptured a water line and stole copper from the attic and outside air conditioning units. Water from the busted line soaked boxes on the floor that held donated toys, caused damage to walls and ruined carpeted floors.

Neighbors in Christ primarily serves Montgomery County, but also assists victims in Autauga, Elmore and Lowndes counties on an as-needed basis.
