Patricia Adams has been charged with two counts of petit larceny and was then released with a ticket to appear in court later.

Apparently during services at Our Lady of Hope Catholic Church in New York this past weekend, Adams leaned over a church pew and stole cash from the purse of a parishioner kneeling down praying in front of her.

An usher watched the sinful act as it happened and called the police. When Adams attempted to leave the church after mass ended, the police arrested her, recovered the money and returned it to the unsuspecting victim.

To make the story worse, this was not the first time the 46-year-old Adams helped herself to someone else’s purse during mass. In May, the woman stole cash from a purse left on a pew when another parishioner went to the altar to receive communion.

Looks like someone is in need of a trip to the confessional.

Be Safe, Be Prepared, Watch where you leave your purse and who is behind you, even in the house of the Lord.
