Mangaluru, April 03, 2020: Over 10 offertory boxes were stolen and the cash inside them looted by thieves who broke into the Our Lady of Mercy Church at Paneer near Derlakatte on Thursday night.
The thieves have also damaged the tabernacle of the Holy Communion. As many as nine doors of the church were broken by the thieves.
The suspicion is that the theft in the church was the handiwork of those involved in the theft in the wine shop at Nityanandanagar near Konaje.
