5-Foot Crucifix Stolen from NYC Church During Mass

Saturday, 06 Dec 2014 06:42 PM

Police say a 5-foot-tall wooden crucifix has been stolen from the entryway of a Roman Catholic church during Mass in New York City.

Police say Saturday the $5,000 cross was reported missing Wednesday night from the lobby of Saint Anthony of Padua in the Bronx's Morrisania neighborhood.

Pastor Josu Iriondo tells the New York Post the crucifix must have been unscrewed from the wall. He says parishioners may have mistaken the heist for renovations.

The 75-year-old pastor tells the newspaper congregants are praying for its safe return.
