A convicted criminal has been arrested again after he allegedly stole church donations from the Church of St. Joseph in Bronxville.
Frederick Nelson, 63, took a bank deposit bag containing approximately $2,000 in holiday church collections on New Year’s Eve, CBS reported. Nelson had just been paroled the previous day after serving five years for theft.
