Felonies for lifting $1.50 from church

Nov. 29, 2012 at 4:57 PM   |   Comments

BELLEFONTE, Pa., Nov. 29 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania man faces two felony charges after allegedly breaking into a church and stealing $1.50 in change, court documents show.

Jason Stover, 31, of Bellefonte allegedly broke into the Holy Trinity Orthodox Church -- the fourth such break-in there in the last few months -- and rummaged through drawers. Security cameras show a man with a dark coat and a fur-lined hood breaking in and ransacking the church. The loose change was intended for charity, the criminal complaint said.

The State College Centre Daily Times said Wednesday Stover faces felony counts of burglary and criminal trespass after police were able to identify him based on his distinctive coat. Stover is also charged with misdemeanor institutional vandalism, theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property.
