Dallas Pastor Accused of Burglary Explains Herself

This does not look good…

The part with McGriff sitting on the furs is her “press conference” explanation of the situation…

“Look at me I’m sitting on a bunch of furs, so I’m not a thief?”

Turns out Mrs. McGriff has a fairly extensive criminal record… And apparently the local media isn’t buying either -

A columnist’s riff on Dallas pastor Sandy McGriff

She stirred like a church mouse on the eve of Christmas Day; Yet, t’wasn’t her house and the owner was away. A neighbor called the cops, who then rushed to defend; but mouse in said house said she was helping a friend.

She helped herself, too, to mink coats and three purses; and a laptop on which she could click on God’s verses. But with all they could see, the cops couldn’t believe; that this woman, a pastor, had scared away thieves.

And Sandy McGriff, who to this day does protest; she was charged with burglary and resisting arrest. No one can say now how this ironic tale ends; to her story, at least, Sandy’s made some amends.

But readers aren’t buying, indeed they are yelping; they scoff at Sandy’s claim, “I thought I was helping.” No, I’m not without sin so I won’t cast a stone; Yes, if it weren’t for the cops, those minks might be gone.

Sandy, meanwhile, is taking new aim at the cops; Said they cuffed her too tightly, didn’t give her due props. Yet her record to date may indeed cast some doubt; the home’s owner thinks she was not there to help out.

While Sandy maintains she walks the “straight and narrow;” court of public opinion’s slinging sharp arrows. So we leave it to you in this Yuletide Season; Are you buying the story, wrapped in such reason?

Oh My!

 

Dallas Pastor Arrested For Burglary

Dallas Pastor Sandy McGriff Shows Off Her Furs

Pastor Denies Committing Christmas Eve Burglary

Dallas preacher Sandy McGriff says she wasn’t breaking into a congregant’s house on Christmas Eve to rob her—she did it to protect the woman from other burglars. McGriff, who was arrested when police caught her loading $10,000 worth of valuables into her car, says she stopped by to check on Serita Agnew’s house when she saw two men exit it. She says she climbed through a window they’d already broken, and grabbed Agnew’s fur coats, designer purses, and a laptop to protect them in case the thieves returned.

“I thought I was helping,” she tells the Dallas Morning News. That, needless to say, is not how police tell the story. A neighbor called police when he spotted a woman break Agnew’s window and climb into the house. When police arrived, they say McGriff told them that Agnew had asked her to pick up the coats, making no mention of the two men. The police report also says she was not sober, and lists her name as “Kathy Robinson,” an alias she has a criminal record under. She was released on $26,000 bail in time for Christmas services.

Things that make you go “Hmmmmmm…”

Seems it would have been a lot simpler just to dial 911 on the old cell phone. Now… I understand about the “Born Again” thing…

But I wasn’t aware that included a criminal alias!
