Police: 78-Year-Old Nun Shoplifted Coffee, Soap, Snacks
BERWICK, Pa. (CBS NEWS) -- State police say a 78-year-old nun was caught shoplifting $23 worth of coffee, snacks and toiletries from a central Pennsylvania store.
Troopers say Sister Agnes Pennino was seen taking the items from the Surplus Outlet near Berwick on Monday afternoon.
WNEP-TV reports police determined the woman captured on surveillance video was the nun who lived about 20 miles away at a convent in Danville.
The station says Saints Cyril and Methodius Convent officials declined to comment. Nobody answered the phone at the convent Thursday morning.
Shoplifting is a summary offense, akin to a traffic ticket, meaning the nun will likely pay a fine if she's convicted.
Store manager Zane Kishbach says he "couldn't believe it that a nun would actually do something like that."
