Thief hits parishes in Detroit archdiocese
April 25, 2011
Police in Michigan are looking for a man who stole thousands of dollars from the collection taken up on Easter Sunday in a Catholic parish.
The theft from Our Lady of Mount Carmel parish in Wyandotte, Michigan, appears to be linked to other recent robberies at Catholic churches in the Detroit archdiocese. Police believe that the thief may sometimes dress like a priest, and shows enough familiarity with parish affairs to find where money from collections is stored.
