On Monday 2nd July, Ramsey Police recovered the chalice that was stolen last week, from Jurby Church. A 22yr old Ramsey man has been arrested and interviewed in connection with this seizure. He was subsequently bailed pending further enquiries.
Police wish to remind the public that two engraved silver collection plates are outstanding.
Sgt Andy Kneen of Ramsey Police said:
“We are anxious to hear from anyone with any information in connection with this crime. We believe that the chalice and plates may have been offered for sale to dealers. I would ask anyone who has been approached to get in touch with the Police. Although there has been an early arrest, this is very much a “live” enquiry involving officers throughout the Island.”
