CU robber goes to confession returns money
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. (7/29/09)--A man who robbed a branch of Patelco CU turned at least part of the money he stole over to a catholic priest after taking part in confession at a church last week. Police do not know the name of the man who went to a Walnut Creek, Calif., church Sunday night and told the priest during confession that he had robbed the Walnut Creek branch of Patelco CU Thursday afternoon. He left the church after giving the priest $1,200 he said he had robbed from the credit union (Contra Costa Times July 28). After the man left, the priest called the police. “I don’t know if that was the entire amount or a percentage of the amount,” Shelly James, Walnut Creek police lieutenant, told the newspaper. “He said he felt remorse.” After handing the Patelco teller a note Thursday, the man claimed he had a gun. Police will arrest the robber when he is found, James told the paper.
