Lamor Whitehead, the New York City bishop robbed while his service was streaming, was arrested Monday morning on federal fraud and extortion charges.
NBC New York reports the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced that authorities took Whitehead into custody on an indictment in Manhattan and believe the bishop, who made headlines after being robbed of $1 million of jewelry on a livestreamed Sunday service, scammed a parishioner out of about $90,000 in retirement savings.
