Sister Agnes Pennino then filled her car boot with the loot and drove away.

Someone in the store claims they saw Sister Agnes stealing the items and it didn't take long for the police to track her down.

The 78-year-old was charged with shoplifting $23 (4 thousand Naira) worth of coffee, shampoo and soa.

Shopper Wendy Everett said: "Humanity's gone to hell, to put it bluntly," when she was told what had happened.

Store manager Zane Kishbach told the New York Daily News the theft had been planned well.

"I was shocked, to say the least," he said. "I couldn't believe it that a nun would actually do something like that."

The incident took place in Pennsylvania, where shoplifting is a summary offense.

That means if Sister Agnes is convicted it is likely she will only have to pay a fine.
