A 60-year-old church usher was arrested Sunday in Marion County on allegations of stealing money from offering baskets while the congregation prayed with their eyes closed and heads bowed, deputies said.

Mario Condis was arrested on one count of grand theft and three counts of petit theft.

According to the Marion County Sheriff's Office, deputies received a call from officials at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church about suspicions that a volunteer usher was stealing money.

Deputies set up surveillance cameras in the church and said they caught Condis stealing money during each Mass.  Deputies later posted the video to the MCSO Facebook page.

Detectives watched Condis on Sunday during Spanish Mass and saw him taking money from the baskets and placing it in his pockets, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Marion County sheriff's detectives approached Condis as he walked toward the altar and escorted him out of the church.

About $350 was found in Condis' pockets, and he initially claimed that it was his money, deputies said.  He said he was going to put the money on the altar, but detectives took him into custody.

Condis posted a $3,500 bond Sunday evening and was released from the Marion County Jail.

That is sure victory church in Malaysia where the Ghanaian pastor and his Nigerian assistants are helping themselves with church offering. when you see them singing and dancing in the church, you would think that they are doing it whole heartedly. But they do that for the money they hope to steal. Ibe Onyinyechi Obiagari and her boyfriend Onyedikachi. Holy thieves.

this serves as deterrent to other church workers who thinks nobody sees them during church service.
