Police seek church thief

Posted By on Wed, Apr 20, 2016 at 3:44 PM

Police investigators are searching for a man who stole a camera valued at $1000 from a church on March 6.

Just before 3 p.m. on March 6, "a church deacon was taking pictures of members at a church located on the 500 block of Hamilton Court, when he left his camera unattended," police say.

"When the deacon returned, his camera was missing. Ashton Gibbs, 26, a paid musician at the church, was last seen near the camera and had also left the scene. The next day, investigators learned that Gibbs pawned the camera at a local pawn shop."

Gibbs faces theft by taking and theft by conversion charges stemming from this incident. He is described as a black male of a dark brown complexion, weighing approximately 155 pounds and standing at five feet eleven inches tall.

Gibbs is known to frequent the Tatemville area.

  • Editor's Note: The new normal of crime downtown

    While there is plenty of worry about how violent crime will affect tourism, the real concern is how it will affect the decision of residents whether or not to stay. The idea of leaving for a more safe locale seems almost inconceivable to those of us who’ve invested many years and whole lifetimes here. But Savannah’s just like anyplace else— people and businesses can decide it’s just not worth it anymore.
