MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WSAU-Wheeler News) - Stealing from a church is one thing, but selling an estimated 80-thousand dollars’ worth of stolen good for a hundred bucks is another.  Milwaukee Police say that’s what two perps did last Monday to the St. Anthony Catholic Church.

Authorities say several brass and gold candle-holders were taken and sold as scrap. The buyer helped lead police to the arrest of a 31-year-old on Thursday and a 55-year-old on Friday.

Police say the two unidentified suspects allegedly smashed the marble off the candlesticks so they could transport all the metal in a trash can.
