Thief Returns Stolen Collection Money To Methuen Church

METHUEN (CBS) - The person who stole $600 from St. Lucy's Roman Catholic Church in Methuen over the weekend, has had a change of heart.

The parish reported on Friday that the stolen collection money had been returned.

It disappeared from an unlocked safe on Sunday.

At the time, the church's pastor reported the crime to police, but also offered the thief a way out.

He said the church wouldn't ask questions and wouldn't press charges if the money was returned.
