Liturgical clothings and procession flags stolen from church

Country: Germany

Date of incident: March 31, 2024

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 caused damage of approximately 200 euros.

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 was informed and the objects were returned to the church.
