UPPER DARBY — Theft and not prayer was on the mind of a woman who entered St. Laurence Church on Sunday during the distribution of Holy Communion and stole another woman’s handbag, according to police.
The devil, as always, is in the details.
“Within an hour, there was a report of a purchase of $22 worth of gas from the Hess station on West Chester Pike, in Havertown, with the stolen card,” Chitwood said.
“Then she apparently went to McDonald’s and placed a $34 order and fled from the drive-through window without the food when asked to sign the receipt. Not only is this woman a thief, she’s a hungry thief. There was a report of a male in the car with her when she went to McDonald’s.”
The lunchtime order included two Big Macs, two supersized French fries, two large mocha frappes, one 20-pack Chicken McNuggets and two grilled chicken salads.
The thief was described as a white female in her 50s, with blond hair and the smell of alcohol on her breath.
