NYPD looking for suspect accused of taking $11K from the Immaculate Conception Church



Police say that the man in the video below took $11,000 from Immaculate Conception Church on East 14th Street just east of First Avenue.

Per WABC 7's report:

The Rev. Kevin Nelan, a priest at Church of the Immaculate Conception, said the money was brought to the church for safekeeping. "The money he stole is from our hospital chaplain who lives here, who was holding it for a bishop who is visiting from Nigeria."

The chaplain was not able to deposit the money in the bank Friday, said Nelan, who thinks unfortunately the thief just got lucky. "That that room was open and that that kind of money was there, because normally there would not be that kind of money sitting there," he said.



If you have a tip about this case, then you may call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.

Why were they giving the 11,000 dollar gift to a bishop in Nigeria as the video partially explains?

$11,000? Being held for a bishop from NIGERIA? What is wrong with this picture??

I'm pretty sure money laundering counts as some kind of sin.

Didn't this church get robbed a couple years ago? I'm remembering that something bad happened there -- can't remember if someone got beat up or robbed or if there was a fire or something? What was it?

Hello, I am a bishop in Nigeria and I have $4 million dollars in an offshore account. If you send me your banking information and passwords, I will transfer the fortune to you.

Make money from home -- my aunt's friend is a Nigerian bishop who makes $1000 per day on the internet. Find out how.

There was no "Immaculate Conception" You guys have been fooled. Now, for the umpteenth time, a Napoleon Bonaparte quote: "Religion was invented to keep the poor from killing the rich".
