Historic Bells Stolen from Swiss Church

Wynau (  In the last week a bell was stolen in Wynau Canton, Bern without a trace.  The police are investigating say media reports, persons unknown.  The evangelical reformed church community is shocked.

The historical bells one which was poured in 1554, the other from the year 1450 were long out of service.  Since the 70s, they were placed on pedestals in front of the church.  This last week both bells disappeared in the night.  An eyewitness had seen men load the bells in a truck and quickly alerted the police.  The perpetrators could not be investigated since then.  It is suspected that this was done by a ordinary metal thieves.
