Stealing From The Church

Written by Kari Milchman on . Posted in Crime Watch Our Town Downtown, Posts.

Not all was jolly and jovial on Christmas day. Somewhere between $20 and $30 grand was stolen from St. Mel’s Roman Catholic Church in Queens shortly after morning Mass. God works in ironic ways, we guess. Police say that the safe contained donations for needy children. The Rev. Christopher J. Turczany marvels at the fact that the burglary went down while church-goers were still in the building. Apparently, the crooks were seen getting into a SUV with their Christmas goodies. We hope Santa brought those needy kids something extra special nice to make up for the lack of cold hard cash.
