Stolen Bible recovered

A man was arrested after trying to to sell a Bible stolen from St. John Lutheran Church, St. Louis. The owner of an antique books store in St. Louis suspected the Bible was stolen and alerted police. Authorities believe the suspect may have been responsible for all six burglaries at the church since September. The Bible, which dates to the 19th century and weighs more than 15 pounds, is only used for special occasions and had been brought out of storage for Christmas services. On top of getting the Bible back, an anonymous donor gave the church a substantial amount of money to buy a security system.
