The thief, identified as Agyasuo burgled a Catholic Church building in Techimantia, Tano South, Ghana.
Using a chisel and hammer, the brilliant thief bore a hole through the ground floor of the story building church waiting to carry out his operations.
Reports indicate that while making the hole, he was spotted by some residents but they decided to remain mute and see what Agyasuo would do next.
Making way through the whole, he stole the church’s offertory and some mobile phone devices.
The mission was successful but unfortunately for him, he couldn’t sneak back out through the hole and residents alerted the caretaker of the building after he had been there for a while.
The caretaker opened the door and found the suspect trapped inside the hole.
As he begged to be let out, residents collected the offering money he stole first, while quizzing him.
He was also reportedly caught with a bag containing packed phones, computer and accessories he had gathered from the church.
Reports also indicate that the total amount of offertory he stole was GH¢200.00.
