Man filmed while attempting to rob Brooklyn church
« on: January 01, 2011, 08:01:19 PM »
A man who attempted to rob a Coptic Orthodox Church in Brooklyn, New York was filmed by the security system, hid in the basement and was caught soon afterwards.

From the article:
Quote
One of the church's priests caught a glimpse of the would-be burglar on a surveillance camera and immediately called 911, he said.

"First he broke into the side door and he tried ripping off the collection boxes," said Father Luke Awad. "He actually ripped off the offering box and tried to walk out the door with it.

"Who would do such a thing is hard to imagine," the priest said.

 :police:
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
