Organ valued at $200K stolen from Mt. Washington church

| March 2, 2013

PITTSBURGH —  Authorities are investigating after an organ valued at $200,000 was stolen from a Mt. Washington church.

According to police, St. Justin’s Catholic Church on Mt. Washington recently merged with St. Mary of the Mount, and was closed when the organ was stolen.

Investigators said very few people have access to the church now that it’s closed, and they’re looking into how someone was able to make off with the organ.

“I can’t believe someone came into church and took an organ. It’s a big piece of equipment,” St. Justin’s business manager Skip Hary said.

Hary said the organ pipes that were also stolen could only be accessed by a ladder into the ceiling.
