LENOIR CITY (WATE) - Two men are facing theft and burglary charges after Lenoir City police say they stole an expensive keyboard from the city's largest church.

Arthur Towle, 53, and Adam Baker, 32, were arrested Wednesday afternoon and charged with burglary and theft over $1,000.

Church officials said the two got into the First Baptist Church building sometime Saturday through an unlocked door and stole a musical keyboard. Church members discovered it missing Sunday morning.

The keyboard was found Wednesday at a pawn shop in Sweetwater.

Officials believe the pair may be linked to more church burglaries in Knox and Loudon counties. No charges have been filed in those cases yet.
