57-year-old Antonio Figueroa of Jersey City has been arrested for allegedly stealing from a Hoboken Church donation box.
According to Hoboken PD, Officers Lehbrink and Montalvo were dispatched yesterday’s afternoon to the area of 4th Hudson St on a report of someone calling for help. The officers arrived and spoke with the victim about a male entering the church and taking money from the collection box using what appeared to be a wire hanger.
