While bank robberies are hardly unheard of in Poland, this one has a particularly unusual twist: the man who held up a teller at knifepoint and stole several thousand złoty turned out to be a priest.
The man took the equivalent of about €1,000 from a PKO branch in Szamotuły, near Poznań. It was not until the police detained the man shortly after the robbery that they realised that he is a man of the cloth. The man had worked in the northern town of Białogard, but at the moment had been without a position in the church.
It’s safe to say that after breaking the law, not to mention several commandments, he will not be preaching anytime soon.
