Police have arrested a man believed to have stolen money from St. Mary on the Hill Catholic Church’s donation boxes.

Richmond County sheriff’s Capt. Calvin Chew said Friday that Timothy Patrick Almy, 48, of Gordon Highway, has been charged with theft by taking in connection with the incident.

Police released a photo Thursday seeking information on the then-unidentified suspect.

According to an incident report, deputies were called last month to the church at 1420 Monte Sano Ave., after money was discovered missing from collection boxes labeled “Poor Box” and “Catholic Social Service” in the lobby.

Surveillance video captured images of a man kicking the boxes, which are mounted on columns, to get the money.

GO STRAIGHT TO CONFESSION

This is so sad that he would steal from donations designated for the poor and for the Catholic Social Service Fund, St Mary's would have helped him with any legitimate needs he had if he had presented his case to them.

I thought that money was supposed to be for the poor? He was apparently poor... but then, it would cut into the Church's profits

Is that Al from Happy

Is that Al from Happy Days?
Anyway, if you total up the years that this clown SHOULD have served for all his crimes, he'd still be incarcerated. So why is he loose and committing crimes? Please explain, legal experts.

Once a thief.....

I don't know how you qualify stealing, but stealing from charity has to be as low as you can go.

other thefts

I used to stop by and pick up some of their publications and leave $ in the designated box for them, and one day I saw the box was gone (it was a wooden box either nailed to the bookshelf or freestanding, can't remember). One day it was gone and I asked someone there where it went and I was told it was stolen, so I was encouraged to leave my donation in one of the slots this fellow has been accused of accessing. These things are implanted into stone pillars so they would have been really kicked or bashed badly. Catholic churches used to be able to stay unlocked for people to come in and pray freely but nowadays it is no longer safe and this is very sad. Our nun was assaulted at our downtown church when she simply answered a question and it is a blessing she was not injured worse, "just" pushed down and purse stolen.

Prison can't help him

He is stealing from God, no amount of prison can compare to when we all gather together after this life. Will he be on the right hand or left hand side, not judging but unless he finds God and is saved he will be on the left. Patrick I hope you read this and can find redemption, or else you will be miserable for eternity

What this thief's record shows is the criminal justice system is a joke. He's flaunted the system for many years because of weak sentencing. How about giving a career criminal a sentence that will keep him off the streets for more than a few months.
