Bible thief steals ancient books (UK)





A thief has been sneaking into country churches and stealing ancient bibles from under the noses of worshippers, police said.
Eight antique bibles have been stolen from churches in Hampshire, including a rare example from the 18th Century.

The bible went missing from St Mary The Virgin Church in Church Lane, Twyford, near Winchester, at the end of April.

The original had been displayed in a glass case, but the thief replaced it with a fake.
