Times Wire Reports

Thou shalt not steal -- at least not near a convent. Police in Independence, Mo., credit two nuns with helping capture a burglary suspect.

About 7 a.m., one of the nuns saw a man walking through a field. He was carrying a shotgun and other items. She and another nun went to see if he was lost or a poacher.

He ran. One nun gave chase, dressed in her ankle-length habit and flip-flops. He got away, but she described him to police, who made an arrest.
