St. Helen's Church in Queens Robbed, Chalice Taken
Around six o'clock this morning, police say thieves broke into St. Helen's Church in Howard Beach, then into the sacristy, and stole a chalice. Here's a picture; if anyone tries to sell it to you, you'll know it wasn't obtained by honest means. You should also, NYPD asks, call 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
St. Helen's was last in the crime news in 2007, when a disturbed man tried to stab a cop outside it, believing he was defending the church from attackers. The knife hit the officer's badge and broke.
