Usher allegedly steals from Holy Rosary Church

IDAHO FALLS – An usher at a local church allegedly stole from his congregation. Twenty-five year old Jose Navarro Cuellar volunteers his time at the Holy Rosary Church in Idaho Falls. Last week, Cuellar was caught on church security cameras stealing money from the church. A couple other ushers also saw him pocketing cash from the church, April 25 and 26. Police were unable to determine how much he stole. They cited him for petit theft.

Father Joe McDonald says Jose Cuellar has been volunteering with the church for about five years.

This is the allegedly the second theft from the church since Easter. At the end of March, the church's secretary was allegedly caught stealing about $1,000 from the congregation.
