MARLTON, N.J. (WTXF) - A man got into a South Jersey church and left hours later with cash and gift cards from its offices. What’s left is a picture of the suspected thief who Evesham police hope you can identify.
They say the man entered St. Joan of Arc Church on Willowbend Road in Marlton at about 6:15pm last Monday, Feb. 13.
Then, for almost five hours, he “hid inside a guest room on the second floor of the church, where members of the church live. At around 11:00pm, the suspect began walking around the building, stealing cash and gift cards from various rooms.”
Police say after, they think he called a taxi to get somewhere near Philadelphia International Airport.
He is described as in his 40s with a stocky build, and he had a thin mustache.
