OWINGS MILLS, Md. -
If you steal from a church, then from an 83 year old man in a McDonald's bathroom stall, karma may find a way to catch you; and that process has started in the bowels of the Baltimore County Police Department.
Inside the garage is the Mt. Pleasant AME Church's van; a vehicle used to transport older parishioners.
Baltimore County detectives say the suspect stole the keys during the burglary of a church member's home in a Baltimore city and then stole the van from the church in Owings Mills Monday morning.
Detectives then say the suspect drove to this Pikesville McDonald’s and stole an 83 year old man's wallet while he was in the bathroom stall.
"The suspect ran out of the McDonald’s and got into the van and leave the area before police arrived, however the vehicle was recovered this morning in the parking lot of Mondawmin Mall," said Baltimore County Detective Cathy Batton.
The suspect was nowhere to be found, nor was the cash, ID or other credits cards of the elderly victim, but police have the van and just this afternoon finished processing it for evidence; a process that could give police a good lead on the suspect.
If not, McDonald's tells us it has surrendered its surveillance video from that location which could give detectives a good look at who they are looking for.
