SUNBURY, Pa. (AP) - Police have charged a woman with stealing the personal Bible of a Catholic priest from his central Pennsylvania chapel.

The (Sunbury) Daily Item (https://bit.ly/26wO5vI ) reports 52-year-old Elizabeth Pensyl was arrested at her home Wednesday night.

The Rev. Fred Wangwe (wong-WAY’) tells Sunbury police he found the Bible and two other religious books missing from the chapel at St. Monica Parish on Tuesday. When police reviewed surveillance video, they identified Pensyl and found the stolen materials at her home while arresting her on an unrelated charge.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Pensyl, and police couldn’t immediately be reached Thursday for additional details.

Officer Steve Mazzeo tells the newspaper, “It is disgusting to steal, let alone from a church.”

Sunbury is about 50 miles north of Harrisburg.
