Arrest Warrant Out For Fake Priest

Kilgore police have now obtained a warrant for the arrest of Leslie Earl Raymond, 37, of California.  He's been identified as the fake priest who walked into a Kilgore CVS last week, purchasing $800 worth of gift cards, right after he stole a wallet from a patient he had prayed with, at a nearby hospital.

Kilgore police say the case will be handed over the District Attorney's Office sometime next week and formal charges will be filed.  

On a side note, investigators in Sioux Falls, South Dakota tell KLTV 7 they have now filed charges against Raymond.  Those charges include one count of second degree burglary and seven counts of forgery.
