A church in Los Angeles has pressed charges against a homeless man who was caught stealing around $2.25-worth of cookies from the First Baptist Church of Royal Palm Beach.
According to a report in the Palm Beach Post, the homeless man had been looking for assistance from the church when he entered the building and was caught stealing the cookies from a jar by the cleaner.
After discussions between police and church members, it was decided that the church would press charges. The man was then arrested and held in custody.
The church defended its decision, saying police would help the man get the help he needed.
