At least three people, who pretended to be worshipers, broke into the personal office of Archbishop Mario Poli last Monday and stole 100.000 pesos. It was the same workplace used earlier by Jorge Bergolgio, now Pope Francis.

According to Noticias Argentinas news agency, the episode took place at 6 pm when the attackers waited for the visitants to leave.

Once the Church was empty, they opened their way through a lateral entry, passed by six different doors, and reduced one security guard. Five religious men who were working at the first floor resulted threatened with guns.

The thieves apparently knew that someone was carrying 100.000 pesos.

“They knew who they were looking for, and they knew the name of the priest who had the money,”  added an unrevealed source.

Although the robbery happened last Monday, it was published today by Security sources from the Federal Police and the Ministry of Security.

In addition, the thieves walked away with moneyboxes and other objects of value. No one has been detained yet.
