Accused Church Thief Surrenders

By Veronica Waters

Atlanta, GA None —

A Marietta woman may be praying for forgiveness after her arrest for stealing in church.

Woodstock Police say 37-year-old Melissa Rodriquez surrendered Friday on charges including fraud and theft by taking.

Police say on May 23, a woman filed a report saying that her wallet had been stolen.  The last time she had seen it was when she was at church.  When the victim called her bank to tell them to cancel a credit card, she was informed that it had already been used once at a Woodstock Target.

Investigators checked surveillance video and saw Rodriquez using the card at the store to ring up a $76.40 purchase. 

She turned herself in to police after arrest warrants in her name were issued.
