Church thief blessed himself with holy water before stealing car

A man accused of stealing a car at a church in DeWitt, New York blessed himself with holy water before the theft.

"He must be a good Catholic," said the Rev. J. Robert Yeazel from the Holy Cross Church.

Surveillance cameras revealed that after Tony M. Lynch, 56, of Syracuse took car keys from a coatroom on Jan. 7, he dipped his hands in holy water and made the sign of the cross, said Pastor Yeazel.

Lynch then used a fob on the key ring to find the car in the parking lot. He was caught this week by police at a church in the town of Onondaga.
