A nun allegedly stole $23 worth of food and toiletries, according to police in Columbia County, Penn.
She is allegedly to have taken shampoo, coffee, snacks, and soap from a surplus store without paying.
Sister Agnes Pennino, 78, was spotted shoplifting at a central Pennsylvania store on Monday.
“Humanity’s gone to hell, to put it bluntly,” Berwick resident Wendy Everett told WNEP-TV.
“Another customer came to me in aisle 5 and said, ‘I’m not sure what I’m seeing, but I think a woman is stealing,’ and she had already left the store by that time and I went out to pursue her,” store manager Zane Kishbach added to WNEP.
Then, she waited for someone to come to the door before “she ran out” of the store, the manager added.
Her car was tracked down to Saints Cyril and Methodius Convent in Danville.
Saints Cyril and Methodius Convent officials declined to comment, reported The Associated Press. Nobody answered the phone on Thursday morning about the theft.
Shoplifting, a summary offense, is like a traffic ticket, meaning that the nun will get a fine if she is convicted.
