DALLAS (AP) — A Texas pastor caught by police with a laptop and fur coats said she was protecting the valuables, not stealing them from the home of a parishioner.
Sandy McGriff, cofounder of the Church of the Living God, tells The Dallas Morning News that she used poor judgment when she entered a church member’s home through a broken window and removed valuable property.
McGriff faces charges of burglary of habitation and resisting arrest. She posted a $26,000 bond and was released from the Dallas County Jail.
