Nun defeats thief

A would-be thief got away with nothing after being confronted by an angry nun with a commanding voice.

Sister Lynn Rettinger, of Pittsburgh, spotted the man reaching into an opened car window and stealing a wallet on Tuesday.

Putting the tone of voice she's used for nearly 50 years teaching in Catholic schools, the principal of Sacred Heart Elementary School went outside and firmly told the man: 'You need to give me what you have.'

The thief promptly handed over the wallet, apologized and walked away.

Rettinger said she just talked to him as she would do with a student when she knew they had something they shouldn't. Police are still looking for the man.
