Thieves repeatedly target English cathedral

Catholic World News - March 27, 2012

Staff at the Catholic cathedral in Norwich, England, have installed seven cameras following three thefts of lead over the past year. Thieves have stolen some of the cathedral’s piping as well as lead from the roof.

“Thefts from Catholic churches have been a particular problem, and in one case a tabernacle was stolen,” said Deacon Patrick Limacher of the cathedral. “Insurance companies will only go so far, and so we needed to persuade them that we were being proactive about prevention.”
