DACULA, Ga. (AP) - Police have arrested a man who they say stole musical equipment from at least two churches in Georgia.

WXIA-TV (https://on.11alive.com/1FaJBi7) reports 24-year-old Albert Dobbs Sams of Norcross turned himself in April 3rd after police say he pawned equipment at several stores in Gwinnett County.

A pastor at Hebron Baptist Church in Dacula says four keyboards valued at nearly $7,000 were stolen in March. Police returned the keyboards a few days later after tracking them to two pawn shops in Norcross. They found an amplifier stolen from another church in Duluth. Pawn shops are required to keep serial numbers and the names of sellers.

Sams has been charged with two counts of burglary among other charges.

Police are looking at other musical equipment thefts in Roswell, Norcross and Johns Creek.
