OWASSO, OK – Stealing is low. Stealing from a church is even lower. But that didn’t stop Troy Ridling from going even lower.

Police in Owasso say Troy stole a computer from his own church. An employee of the church noticed the computer had gone missing and called police. That same employee got a call a few weeks later from a company called ‘Covenant Eyes,’ which had been hired by the church to get all the naughty stuff removed from the hard drives.

The company told the employee that they had been getting calls from someone asking them to remove the porn blocker the computer had. The company helped police track down the PC and they arrested Troy.

Looks like someone needs to get to confessional.

That’s how Troy became our Dumbass of the Day!
