Police Confiscate 57 Guns From Priest (Updated)



Father, I didnt sin that much!
  • "Father, I didn't sin that much!"

Update: Make that 80 guns, not 57. And add in 874 boxes of ammunition. The priest, now identified as Abbot John Henry, went to the hospital voluntarily and police continue their investigation, which may include other properties owned by Henry. (WKYC)


A priest at St. Herman's, an Orthodox monastery on Franklin Avenue catering to the area's homeless, was apparently dong his best impression of Delonte West. Fox 8 reports that cops were called to the building Friday night because the priest, whose name has not been released yet, was acting strange.

There they found 57 guns, which they confiscated.

No charges have been filed, but the priest was taken to Lutheran Hospital for a psych evaluation, probably out of concern he was going to go all Desperado with his stockpile of ammunition.
