Bell taken from Arizona church’s steeple returned

KINGMAN, Ariz. — A 120-pound bell that went missing from a Kingman church
has been returned.

The Kingman Daily Miner reported that the brass bell was
brought back to St. Mary Catholic Church on Wednesday by a man who wished to
remain anonymous.

Church parish coordinator Donna Wicker said the man told her that he had informed
Kingman police in an anonymous phone call about the bell’s whereabouts and was
working with them.

Kingman police spokeswoman Jennifer Sochocki said authorities did get an
anonymous call about the bell but did not disclose any other details.

The bell was caked in dirt, indicating it had been buried. It had last been seen March 22.

Wicker said the church will likely place the bell in the belfry after church
construction work is completed.
