A Lexington church is dealing with catalytic converter thefts.

Northeast Christian Church in Hamburg says someone took converters from some of its vans and buses.

The theft was discovered Sunday morning as the fleet headed out to shuttle people to church.

Director of Church Facilities Reggie Smith says, "It's a hardship, yet we still pray for the people who did this, knowing that they need help also. And I think people who sometimes do these kind of things don't understand that we're here to help. They're doing more damage than good by taking money from one pocket and not letting us help people who really need it."

In addition to the cost of replacing the catalytic converters, the church is also looking at tighter security, which would add to its expenses.
