    Thousands of dollars from collection plates were stolen from a Sacramento church on Easter Sunday.

    The Arden Church of the Nazarene on Arden Way was targeted, Sacramento County sheriff's deputies said.

    Just after a service, someone made off with the money.

    Church officials said $15,000 to $20,000 is missing.

    Sheriff's officials said two women in their early 20s were caught in a locked office at the church.

    The women said they had permission to be there. But before that could be confirmed, the duo took off.
