Nun, 78, Swipes $23 Worth of Coffee, Soap, Snacks From Pennsylvania Store: Police

A 78-year-old nun was caught shoplifting $23 worth of coffee, snacks and toiletries from a central Pennsylvania store, said state police.

Sister Agnes Pennino was seen taking the items from the Surplus Outlet near Berwick on Monday afternoon, said troopers.

WNEP-TV reported police determined the woman captured on surveillance video was the nun who lived about 20 miles away at a convent in Danville.

The station said Saints Cyril and Methodius Convent officials declined to comment. Nobody answered the phone at the convent Thursday morning.

Shoplifting is a summary offense, akin to a traffic ticket, meaning the nun will likely pay a fine if she's convicted.

Store manager Zane Kishbach said he "couldn't believe it that a nun would actually do something like that."
