Priest Accused of Shoplifting Butter, Sofa Cover (from ABC News/GMA)

WEST CITY, Ill. January 25, 2010 (AP)
The Associated Press

A Roman Catholic priest was accused of shoplifting butter and a sofa cover at a Wal-Mart in southern Illinois. 41-year-old the Rev. Steven Poole is charged with failure to scan a $3.22 container of butter and a $60 sofa cover at a self-checkout, and switching the bar code on a memory foam mattress which caused the $145 item to be scanned for $31.

Allegedly, Poole also possessed a stolen laptop computer power pack.

He’s the priest for St. Andrew’s Catholic Church in Christopher and St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Sesser.

Thank goodness! A priest is finally accused of crimes which we can talk about in mixed company!
