Police in Hollywood Wednesday asked the public's help in finding a burglar who stole $50,000 in religious articles from the altar room of a Russian Orthodox church.
The burglary took place the evening of Dec. 22 at the Holy Transfiguration Russian Orthodox Church, 5432 Fernwood Ave.
Among the articles taken were an enamel chalice, an antique chalice, a chalice set, crosses, cups, a ladle, a spear, stars and a baptismal kit, Lt. Marc Reina told Patch.
There was no sign of forced entry and police are unclear as to whether the suspect or suspects stayed in the church following a service and then targeted the altar room, Reina said.
