A cross has been stolen from a German church

On Friday the 8th of April, a cross made of bronze was stolen from an Augustinian church in Mainz.


A nun noticed that the cross was missing from the altar and, upon reviewing video, the police were able to recognise a 51 year old man who had previously stolen goods.

They were then able to locate the cross, along with three alter candles, and return them to the church. The man was convicted of the theft.
