A Ludlow man was arrested after police say he snuck into St. Elizabeth's parish during Sunday mass, stole a woman's car keys and then stole her purse from the car.
Police say in surveillance video they watched Joshua Bourbeau walking around the church parking lot trying to find which car the keys would open.
On Tuesday they saw him walking down the street with a purse and after a brief pursuit he was arrested.
Bourbeau told police he stole the purse to fuel his heroin problem.
He is now facing multiple charges.
