Supermarket gift cards stolen from church

GORHAM – The Hannaford supermarket chain has replaced $900 worth of gift cards after somebody pilfered them from Gorham’s First Parish Church during a Sunday service.

The Rev. David Butler says it appears somebody stole the cards – which were intended to provide Thanksgiving dinners to 22 needy families in the community – last Sunday and cashed them in the next morning.

After learning about the theft, the Maine-based Hannaford chain agreed to replace the cards.

Police are investigating.
