Texas Pastor Has His Rims Stolen From Detroit Church Parking Lot
The tires and rims of a Texas pastor’s car were stolen while he was attending a church service revival in Detroit, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Pastor Dwayne Houston received a phone call about a half-hour into Sunday’s revival, alerting him that a thief had stripped the rims and tires off his car in the parking lot.
The Dallas pastor tells WDIV-TV he went to the parking lot and found his vehicle “jacked up.”
Houston, who grew up in Detroit, calls the theft “very sad.”
New Foundation Christian Center Minister Norman Black says those responsible for the stolen tires “need prayer.”
Even though Detroit’s unemployment numbers have slightly improved, it still remains one of the city’s hardest hit by the recession. From ‘The Huffington Post’:
Seasonally-adjusted data isn’t available for the city of Detroit, but the unadjusted jobless rate was 18.8 percent in January, the most recent month for which data is available. Unemployment in the city increased slightly previous months, but that rise at least partially reflects seasonal trends. Compared to January 2011, joblessness has gone down 2.5 percent in the city, and another 4.1 percent from January 2010.
While the declines seem promising, Rhein cautioned that the unemployment rates aren’t the full picture.
“Yes we’ve seen payroll growth and job growth,” he explained, “but at the same time we’ve seen labor force withdrawal.”
A report has been filed with Detroit police regarding the pastor’s tires and rims.
