A sticky-fingered church usher was busted pocketing hundreds of dollars in donations from offering baskets while church members prayed, a bombshell video released by a Florida sheriff’s office shows.

Detectives in Ocala, Florida, placed video cameras inside the Blessed Trinity Catholic Church after church officials asked them to investigate suspicions that one of their volunteers, Mario Condis, was stealing church donations.

The video, depicting Condis, 60, grabbing handfuls of cash and picking every last penny from offering baskets and shoving it into his pockets, confirmed their suspicions.

The video is the latest of multiple videos showing Condis stealing offerings while church members bowed their heads in prayer, detectives said.

The social media reaction to the video, which was published on the Marion County Sheriff's Office Facebook page, was fierce.

“OMG...he even steals from God,” posted Octavia Spencer.

“It looked like he took every dime...” wrote Matt Champagne.

On Sunday, detectives stopped Condis as he approached the altar to pray and escorted him out of the church, Florida cops said. They found over $300 of stolen cash on him.

Condis was arrested and charged with grand and petty theft.
