Catholic World News - August 30, 2010
An Irish bishop was the target of an apparent bungled burglary attempt on August 30.
Bishop Seamus Hegarty of Derry told police that he encountered a trespasser at his bedroom door in the early hours of the morning. The bishop said that the thought the man was carrying a weapon. The man left the bishop’s residence, but police soon arrested Declan Devine and charged him with burglary. They reported finding several items that belonged to the bishop in Devine’s home.
