All eyes are on Joel Osteen after a plumber, who was doing repairs at Lakewood Church in Texas, found envelopes full of cash and checks behind a loose toilet.
The discovery comes 7 years after $600,000 in check and cash disappeared from the church’s safe in 2014.
No arrests were made in the case, which is still open with the Houston Police Department.
The plumber gave the details of his shocking discovery, made on November 10, 2021, during a call to 100.3 The Bull.
There was a loose toilet in the wall, and we removed the tile.
We went to go remove the toilet, and I moved some insulation away and about 500 envelopes fell out of the wall, and I was like ‘Oh wow!’
A representative from Lakewood Church confirmed the discovery, telling KPRC:
Recently, while repair work was being done at Lakewood Church, an undisclosed amount of cash and checks were found. Lakewood immediately notified the Houston Police Department and is assisting them with their investigation.
It’s unclear how much cash was in the envelopes.
