Glendale police officers are searching for a man they believe repeatedly pilfered donation boxes at Holy Family Catholic Church in recent months, stealing hundreds of dollars meant for the poor.
The most recent incident took place on Dec. 27 when the man, described by witnesses as 5 feet 10 inches tall, bald, about 50 years old and of Middle Eastern or Latino descent, was spotted at 4 p.m. in front of Holy Family School, said Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz.
The man disappeared, only to be seen an hour later inside the Lomita Avenue church entrance stealing money from the Haiti relief offering box. He fled before police arrived.
