stolen church atrifactPolice in Victoria, British Columbia are investigating a church break in from which thieves were able to escape with precious artifacts.

The cathedral’s dean believes the intruders must have hid inside the chapel while it was being locked up for the night. When the coast was clear, the thieves broke into a display case, taking church items from as early as the 17th century. Among the stolen goods were coins, a golden chalice, and a communion plate.

Officers were notified of the break in at around 10:00pm last night. They searched the area thoroughly, but were unable to turn up any hard evidence or determine a suspect.

As the investigation continues, police ask anyone who has any information to offer aid.
