Woman Confesses To Cookie Caper At Catholic Church

PENNDEL, Pa. (AP) – Police say a woman stole cookies from a Catholic church outside Philadelphia and choked on her own guilt.

The Bucks County Courier Times reports the 51-yearold suspect confessed to Penndel’s police chief a week after she and a man broke into Our Lady of Grace and stole Oreos, coffee, bulk packets of sugar and other items belonging to the church’s Alcoholics Anonymous program.

Chief Joseph Sciscio says he’d been speaking to the woman about an unrelated landlord-tenant issue when she told him that something was bothering her. The chief says she then confessed to the cookie caper and turned over some of the stolen items.

Police plan to charge her with burglary. They didn’t release her name because she hasn’t been formally charged.

Her alleged accomplice also faces charges.
