Volunteer charged with burglary at Bloomingdale church

| August 15, 2011

A 61-year-old church volunteer from Carol Stream has been charged with burglary after surveillance videos showed him stealing money from his parish’s safe and donation boxes, authorities said Friday.

Police said Ross W. Jones, of the 900 block of Dearborn Circle, stole about $2,300 over an undetermined length of time from Mass offerings and donation boxes at St. Isidore Catholic Church in Bloomingdale. Jones told police in a statement Aug. 4 that the thefts were to support a gambling habit.

“It’s a sad day for the parish,” Bloomingdale police Chief Frank Giammarese said. “This is a person who they know and have dealt with in the past and that’s the person who came back and victimized them.”
