CARACAS, VENEZUELA -- Two armed robbers burst into the LDS Church's
mission office in Caracas, Venezuela on December 15th, stealing
cameras and money from two missionaries and a former missionary. The
three were held hostage for several hours before the robbers escaped.
LDS Church Public Affairs confirmed last week to the Salt Lake
Tribune's Rolly and Wells that the office had been robbed. According
to their report, police are continuing to investigate the robbery, but
have made no arrests.
