| March 3, 2011

A 47-year-old Bayonne woman was busted this afternoon for allegedly stealing a gold-plated crucifix worth up to $15,000 from a Jersey City church, officials said.

Linda Keeber, swiped the ornate, gold-encrusted crucifix at the chapel in the parish convent at St. Paul's Church in Greenville after taking confession and receiving communion, police said.

"She should have made the confession after she left, not before," said the Rev. Thomas Thottungal before Keeber was nabbed this afternoon. "It's a terrible thing."
