CLAY Co., Ky. (WYMT) - UPDATE: Law enforcement officials said found all the musical instruments stolen from the Liberty Holiness Church.

The instruments included a keyboard, several guitars and an amp.

Officials said they are looking for 31-year-old Darrell Foutch.

Foutch is from Manchester and officials found his identification with the items.

Officials said they did question his girlfriend.

Jessie Kemp is the pastor at Liberty Holiness Church along Matt Sizemore Road in Clay County.

Kemp said he has preached for nearly 12 years.

However, he said Monday was the first time he experienced a burglary.

"I really don't know why anyone would want to come to a church and break-in," said Kemp.

After prying open the door, sheriff's deputies said those responsible took musical instruments including a keyboard, several guitars and an amp.

Officials said this totaled around $5,000.

"If they would like to return them to us that would really make me feel good," Kemp said. "I'm sure that it would make the members feel good too."

Pastor Kemp said they are staying in spirit and moving forward.

"They're going to be times in our life when people do us wrong, but you know we still have to go on and be good to them," Kemp said.

If you have any information you are asked to call the Clay County Sheriff's Office at 606-598-3471.
