If there is a hell, there's probably a space reserved for people who rob churches.
If so, these two guys better watch out.
Crime Stoppers and HPD released these sketches of two guys suspected in robbing people carrying the collection from Assumption Catholic Church back in January.
There were two people carrying the funds; the suspects drove up in a van, one jumped out and knocked the church people (a woman) to the ground and grabbed the cash.
