Low Lifes

The Tulsa World recently reported the following story:

Two men were arrested Wednesday on allegations that they stole copper tubing from a Tulsa church. Martin Louis Coleman, 46, and Bobby Ray Mason, 19, both of Tulsa, were arrested about 10:15 a.m. after they allegedly were seen taking copper tubing from three air conditioners at Harvard Avenue United Methodist Church...

A witness apparently saw the two men taking the copper tubing from the air conditioners behind the church and called the police...Officers found the men nearby with a stack of the tubing in front of a house. During a search of the home, police found a large bag containing more copper and black foam from the air conditioners, Walton said.

Both men were arrested on complaints of larceny of copper or cable, illegal possession of copper or cable, and grand larceny. Walton said Mason also was booked into jail on outstanding warrants.

How much of a low life do you have to be to steal from a church? (Not that stealing from anyone is more honorable.)
