      This was sent to me by ABA member Sue Moore. I thought it would be a good story to share.

      Wow! That’s a huge amount of weight to steal without getting caught. Sounds like the church needs to install an alarm system. The thieves might have realized finding a scrap yard to accept it no questions asked would be difficult so just dumped it. A long night’s work for nothing.

      IF the bell in question was in fact 5,500 lbs. it would be almost 6 foot wide..I think someone added an extra 0. I would think it was a 550 lb. bell…
