NORWICH, Conn. - Police arrested a 29-year-old man on car theft charges at a church on Sunday, the same church Police Capt. Timothy Menard attends regularly. Menard told the Norwich Bulletin that it seemed like every time the suspect needed gas, he stole a new car.
Police said the suspect went from one car dealership to another to steal cars and had left the church pastor's contact card at a Plainfield dealership before stealing a car from there.
Menard said the pastor of Norwich Alliance Church alerted him to the suspect's presence. Menard cuffed the suspect and walked him out.
Police said that they found a Honda Civic stolen Friday from a Groton dealer in the church parking lot.
