Church Bells Stolen

Church bells valued at $100,000 have been stolen. The Rev. Vasily Lickwar, pastor at Dormition of the Virgin Mary Church in Cumberland, Rhode Island, said that moments after he saw a man get into a van parked in the church’s driveway, he noticed that five of the six bronze and brass bells were missing from a chapel next to the 102-year-old church. The sixth bell, the smallest, was all that remained. The largest bell weighs between 1,200 and 1,500 pounds. The bells were acquired at different times by the church since its founding 102 years ago by Russian immigrants. One came from the Queen Mary; others came from schools, factories, churches and markets.
