Stolen church handbells may have been sold

A PAIR of valuable church handbells may have been sold on to an antiques dealer, police fear.

The bells were stolen from a garage in Wentworth between Tuesday, October 10, and Sunday, October 22.

Police said they were used by a church for concerts and were of high value.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “Officers believe the bells may have been sold on to antiques dealers or other people and want to hear from anyone who may have been offered bells like this for sale in the last couple of weeks.”

Anyone who can offer information should call 101 quoting crime reference number C/139109/2017.
