Church Robber Learns the Meaning of ‘Thou Shalt Not Steal’

In a heartwarming story out of Alabama, a young thug was sent to his great reward after an attempted robbery of a church ended up with him being blasted out of his sneakers.

Late Sunday night, the 26-year-old perp entered Dothan’s Crossroads Baptist Church through a back door with the apparent intent of ripping off the offerings that had been made during the day’s worship services.

Once inside, the predatory thug started making his rounds. The first victim was a church staff member who gave up $50 to the stealthy criminal.

He then made his way to a second person who was wisely armed and chose not to be a victim.

The church staff member quickly busted a cap into the chest of Steffon Parreese Tolver who finally learned the meaning of “thou shalt not steal” as he stumbled outside and collapsed into a pool of his own foul blood in the parking lot.

According to the Dothan Eagle “Man shot and killed during Dothan church burglary”:

A man was shot and killed Sunday night after he attempted to rob a Dothan church parishioner, according to police.

Police indicate Steffon Parreese Valentez Tolver died from a single gunshot wound after trying to rob a person of $50 at Crossroads Baptist Church, located on Westgate Parkway in Dothan. According to police, a church employee shot Tolver once with his personal handgun after Tolver tried to rob him.

The incident happened around 10:40 p.m Sunday.

“From the information I have received, two church employees were inside the building at the time the altercation occurred,” said Dothan Police Chief Steve Parrish. An additional church employee had left the premises to run an errand, and arrived back after the suspect had entered into the church.”

According to Parrish, Tolver entered through the back door of the church. Once he was inside the church, Tolver robbed the parishioner of approximately $50, and then attempted to rob an additional staff member.

Parrish said that is when the staff member fired his personal handgun once, striking Tolver in the upper torso. The suspect fled from inside the church building and collapsed outside from his injuries, Parrish said.

According to Houston County Coroner Robert Byrd, Tolver was pronounced dead at 1:18 a.m. Monday morning.

Dothan Police are still investigating the case.

It’s always nice when a story has a happy ending and at least the Alabama taxpayers will be spared the cost of having to feed and house at least one criminal scumbag.
