The Associated Press is reporting that a man was arrested in South Florida after stealing communion bread during a church service.

John Samuel Ricci, 33, was cornered by fellow churchgoers when he grabbed a handful of wafers from the priest during communion services Saturday.

The Stuart News reports that Ricci was being held down by six or seven offended parishioners when deputies arrived at St. Martin de Porres Catholic Church in Jensen Beach. (MORE)

Ricci was charged with two counts of simple battery, theft and disruption of a religious assembly. He was being held on $2,000 bond.

Marin County officials say they were simply “sending a message” to little old Jewish ladies who steal excessive amounts of cookies from synagogue onegs.
