Stolen guitars returned to Hillcrest Baptist Church

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Two guitars that were stolen from the Hillcrest Baptist Church are back in their rightful location.

According to the church’s music minister, Gene Chappell, the guitars were returned undamaged on Tuesday afternoon. Chappell says one of the guitars was recovered from a pawn shop but he didn’t know where the second guitar was found.

Over the past few weeks, the church’s surveillance system captured a woman coming in and leaving with a guitar on two separate occasions.

Austin police did tell Chappell the suspect is a juvenile. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
