Ross police are searching for a couple accused of stealing from a pastor's home while he was at a Christmas Eve service.

Police obtained arrest warrants for Jeremiah Kelly, 26, and Jessica Hirth, 28, both of Ross, charging them with burglary, receiving stolen property and conspiracy. They are accused of entering Pastor Michael Guthrie's home on Babcock Boulevard and taking credit cards, jewelry, a gun and items that belonged to Guthrie's deceased son, Ross police Sgt. Benjamin Dripps said.

Hirth is Guthrie's niece, Dripps said.

Police also charged Teresa Lenz, 53, of Ross for obstruction and hindering apprehension. Lenz, who is Kelly's mother, tried to hide the escape of the couple from her home when police arrived following the burglary, Dripps said.

Police consider Kelly and Hirth armed and dangerous because of the stolen gun, Dripps said. Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to call Ross police at 412-931-9070.
