Thief steals 'valuable items' from altar server during NJ church mass, police say

An altar server’s bag was stolen from a church during mass in New Jersey last month — a crime that police have described as “a new low.”

The theft took place at St. Charles Church in Washington Township on April 7, the Washington Township Police Department wrote on Facebook.

An altar server’s bag, which contained “several valuable items,” was taken, and the thief fled the scene.

Investigators released surveillance images that appear to show the person, who was wearing a dark coat and dark shorts, with white sunglasses. The person also appears to have a large brown tattoo on the front of their right calf.
