Liturgical objects stolen from a German church

On March 31, a stole, procession flags and clothing were stolen from the Roman Catholic Church of the Assumption of Mary in Scheinfeld, Germany.


The perpetrator was apparently hiding in the confessional during mass before stealing the objects. The man also damaged the confessional, which cost 200 euro to repair. 

The thief, a 37-year-old resident of the nearby asylum shelter, was identified by a local resident because he was wearing the stole in the street.

The police were informed, and the objects were returned to the church.
