In Nantes, a priest’s car was broken into and many sacred artefacts were stolen

On the 15th of February, a priest's car was broken into in Nantes, near Saint-Similien Square.


The car was broken into between 14:00 and 15:30 on the corner of Bel Air street and Saint-Similien square.

The robbers took three suitcases, which contained liturgical material, namely a chalice, a paten and some liturgical ornaments. According to the priest, it was a huge loss to the diocese, as these are sacred objects. He also added that it would be difficult for the thieves to find a buyer for these articles.

According to local inhabitants, car theft is popular in that area between 11 am and 2 pm.
