Thieves steal bells from New Brunswick churches

Penticton Herald - - CANADA -

WOOD­STOCK, N.B. — Thieves have stolen the bells of two his­toric New Brunswick churches.

RCMP say both were stolen in the last two weeks from churches near Wood­stock.

St. Paul’s Angli­can Church in Kirk­land lost its bell some­time be­tween July 16 and July 24.

Po­lice say they found a bell July 25 at a Fred­er­ic­ton scrap­yard, and thought it was St. Paul’s.

But that same day, the Kirk Church in Northamp­ton re­ported it had lost its bell too, and po­lice soon dis­cov­ered the re­cov­ered bell ac­tu­ally be­longed to that church.

The Kirk­land bell is still miss­ing.
