Thieves break into church, steal stained glass window

Historically places of worship have been targets for pagan invaders, looters, plunderers and victorious armies. But seldom the trophy has been a delicate church window.

Perhaps Brock’s art-loving thieves were fascinated by the adornment and wanted it for their private collection?

Whatever their reasons, Durham Regional Police service (DRPS) investigators are asking for the public’s help in locating the suspects and their plunder.

A statement from the DRPS North Division said they are continuing to look for suspects after they broke into a church and stole a stained glass window in Brock Township in early June.

“If you have info please call investigators,” it said.

On June 4 officers from North Division took a report for theft of a stained-glass window. Sometime between June 2 and June 3, unknown suspects broke into the Church of Saint James West Brock Cemetery on Lake Ridge Road and ripped off the stained glass window before fleeing, possibly in a vehicle.

There are no suspect descriptors at this time.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective McArthur of the North Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at 905-579-1520 x 2677.
