Stolen Church Bell Found

hcsp.jpgA church bell stolen from a Gwinnett County congregation last week was recovered after an alert citizen tipped authorities to its whereabouts, Channel 2 Action News reported.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office told Channel 2 that a man had called to say he had purchased the bell, thinking it was an antique, but realized it was stolen when he saw TV reports on the theft.
Sheriff’s officials said the bell, belonging to the Duncan Creek Congregational Church at 3868 Braselton Highway NE, had exchanged hands at least three times. Authorities continued to investigate and had not charged anyone as of Monday night.
