Elderly Swiss Couple Confesses to Robbing Local Churches For Thrills

An elderly couple in the canton of Lucerne, Switzerland have confessed to stealing money from church collection boxes for months, saying that the adrenaline rush it gave them helped cure their boredom.

The couple, who are 70 and 73, had a scheme where the husband kept watch outside while the wife would go in and steal from the boxes. According to the local authorities, the couple is well off, but performed the robberies for the "pleasure of the forbidden."

They've robbed several churches since November of last year, stealing hundreds of Swiss francs in the process.
