UNIONDALE - Members of a Uniondale church had their prayers answered when stolen musical equipment unexpectedly turned up.

The Rev. Ada Jones says someone broke into the New Jeruselum Church of Christ Tuesday night and stole nearly $3,000 worth of music equipment. The next day, she went to Sam Ash in Carle Place to replace the merchandise. As Jones was telling the store manager about the burglary, she says she saw a man wheeling a cart full of the stolen equipment right past her.

Officers quickly arrived and arrested Richard Norris, Duane Smith and Triston Thomas in connection to the theft.

The three men are due back in court Feb. 5.
