STEUBENVILLE – Steubenville police are looking for five teenagers who stole nearly $200 from the offering of Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Church.

Rev. Gregory Thompson said five young men walked into the church during Sunday service. Two of the teens went downstairs, asking for food and distracting parishioners.

They did not realize the teens allegedly took a wad of cash out of the offering until they were gone.

Church neighbor Bill Murray was shocked.

“Very surprised,” he said. “There’s very little crime that happens around here at all. This church … it’s a beacon. It’s somewhere to go.”
