Illinois Priest Arrested for Shoplifting

A Roman Catholic priest in West City of southern Illinois needs to read his commandments again.

Rev. Steven Poole was arrested on charges of theft Friday.

We're not Biblical scholars, but we're pretty sure there's a clear policy about stealing in his line of work.

Police arrested the 41-year-old priest at a Walmart, saying he had shoplifted butter and a sofa cover.


Village police arrested Poole and charged him with two felony counts of theft.

  1. Clearly the poor fellow has issues. No sane person is going to lift butter and a sofa cover!

    People always go for the valuables if they're going to embark upon a life of petty crimes.
