Kung-Fu Sisters Of No Mercy...
"Nuns at the Nazareth House convent in Christchurch didn't wait for divine intervention when a female burglar raided the convent on the day of the Lord - they caught her and held her until police arrived.
Police say the 34-year-old woman, who has since been charged with two burglaries, allegedly entered the convent about 11.45am on Sunday.
After she took wallets and personal property from unoccupied rooms, she was challenged by sisters and staff of the convent.
Although she became "agitated and violent", Senior Sergeant Rob Patterson said, the sisters were able to restrain her.
The woman has been charged with burglary of Nazareth House and another house burglary, also yesterday morning, in Avonside, and has been remanded in custody.
The nuns have asked not to be requested for comment. "
