Brooklyn pastor and his wife robbed of more than $1 million in jewelry while preaching

A flashy Brooklyn pastor known for wearing designer outfits and extravagant jewelry was robbed along with his wife of more than $1 million while he was preaching at church Sunday, police said.

Police say three males entered the Leaders of Tomorrow church Sunday with firearms and removed the jewelry pastor Lamor Miller-Whitehead, who goes by Bishop, and his wife were wearing.

Whitehead said there were gunmen with firearms raised to deacons at the door as well.




There were about 20 to 25 congregants present, police said.

“My church is traumatized,” Whitehead said.
The NYPD said the suspects took more than a $1 million worth of jewelry and then fled the location on foot. They entered a white Mercedes-Benz vehicle.

Whitehead encouraged those responsible to turn themselves in to police.



“I forgive you and I’m praying for you, you know, and I hope that God delivers you from the mindset of who you are at this time,” he said.

Whitehead’s verified Instagram account details his extravagant shows of wealth, including Louis Vuitton-emblazoned suits, large jewelry and flashy cars. In a video on Sunday night, he pushed aback against the media headlines referring to him as “flashy.”

“It’s not about me being flashy. It’s about me purchasing what I want to purchase,” he said. “It’s my prerogative to purchase what I want to purchase. If I worked hard for it, I can purchase what I want to purchase.”
