CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- Police are looking for a person they say broke into a Cape Coral church and stole an electric guitar this week.

According to police, officers were called to the Iglesia de Dios Pentecostal MI church at 151 Pine Island Road on Tuesday morning after a pastor noticed a broken window.

A search of the property revealed three broken windows, one of which appeared to be where the suspect gained entry.

The pastor then discovered that an orange Epiphone Les Paul guitar was missing from inside.  Nothing else seemed tampered with.
