Here’s an odd turn of events in the reported burglary in the residence of Saint Paul and Minneapolis Archbishop John C. Nienstedt: A number of stolen items have been found in a box in the Archbishop’s bedroom, according to a news release this evening from the Archdiocese.
“Reverend Lee Piche, Vicar General of the Archdiocese, discovered the missing valuable historical items, worn by former Archbishops, today in a subsequent final sweep of the room,” the release said. In a final sweep?
Father Piche of the Archdiocese “wondered how the thieves, who had accessed the rooms through the residence roof could have managed to carry both the 75 pound safe and another box, and decided to check the room again, even though it had been searched before. That search resulted in his finding the box with the precious and suspected stolen crosses and rings,” the release said.
