    Ex-priest among 5 charged in federal drug probe

    BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A federal grand jury in Connecticut has indicted a former Roman Catholic priest and four other people in an alleged drug operation involving shipments of methamphetamine from California.
    Prosecutors say 61-year-old Kevin Wallin of Waterbury, former pastor at St. Augustine's parish in Bridgeport, received shipments of methamphetamine from California and sold drugs to an undercover officer over the past four months.
    The grand jury in Bridgeport indicted the five people Tuesday on drug charges. All five are detained. It's not clear if they have lawyers.
    Also charged are Kenneth Devries of Waterbury, Michael Nelson of Manchester, Chad McCluskey of San Clemente, Calif., and Kristen Laschober of Laguna Niguel, Calif.
    The Diocese of Bridgeport says Wallin resigned as pastor of St. Augustine's in June 2011, citing health and personal issues.

    Says former-priest, wonder what the story is there ... was he kicked out of the priesthood first, or after?

    Just like the media itself, I sensationalized the thread title by calling him a priest as opposed to "former priest" (he resigned not very long ago)....makes the news item stand out more...

    But it says he resigned as pastor of the church. Wouldn't he still be a priest with the collar and all? (Dunno. I wasn't raised Catholic.) :scratch:
