Staten Island: Two Men Arrested For Stealing Supplies For Sandy Victims
The two thieves were arrested at the Christian Pentecostal Church while trying to load 35 cases of bottled water into a rented U-Haul.
The NYPD was staking out the church because church leaders have reported a rash of thefts of donations including blankets, cleaning supplies and diapers.
The church’s pastor, John Rocco Carlo, said the supplies are always stored in a locked parking lot. But he says the thieves have been hopping walls and finding other ways to get in.
Carlo says the burglaries began before Thanksgiving.Click here for reuse options!
