Criminal Justice Quote: Pastor Traps Thief

     Tired of getting his packages stolen off his doorstep, a pastor decided to put a stop to the perpetrator's thieving ways…Benny Homes, a pastor from the Church of New Beginnings in Baytown, Texas, was reportedly at his wits end when two packages delivered to his front doorstep disappeared. According to his wife, Pat Homes, the pastor opted to take matters in his own hand rather than involve the police…

     Pastor Homes decided to concoct a plan to catch the thief who stole the packages that included the pastor's new robe. Based on surveillance footage he knew the thief was a woman…

     The pastor's plan involved placing fake boxes that appeared to be newly delivered packages on his front porch. He then hid and waited for the thief to take the bait…The moment the woman approached the porch and checked out the packages, Homes…captured the lady.

     The package thief was later identified as Laurie Ferguson, a 52-year-old grandmother. Despite having been caught in the act, Ferguson feigned innocence…She claimed to be looking for her dog…Armed with a pistol, Homes ordered the woman to lie on the ground. He then called the police…

     Two of Ferguson's grandchildren were discovered waiting for her in the backseat of her car. A search of the suspect's home revealed thirty stolen items….
