The Venezuelan newspaper El Nacional reported, citing local sources, that the incident occurred early Monday morning around 3:00 AM and appeared to be both an act of larceny and desecration. The culprits destroyed an altar to the Virgin Mary, stealing some jewels from the statue at the altar, as well as stealing the chalice used for Communion, the Eucharist, and the tabernacle.
“We found the tabernacle on the roof of the church, though it is significantly damaged,” vicar Oswaldo Montilla said following the incident. He noted that the other stolen items remain lost.
