[UPDATE] St. John’s Episcopal Church In Troy Was Robbed

Updated at 1:30 p.m.

There has been an arrest of two Albany area men that stole some ‘priceless’ religious artifacts from St. John’s Episcopal Church in Troy. In a story from the Times Union, 30-year-old James Zaremski from Albany, and 32-year-old Joseph Plouff from Watervliet tried to pawn the stolen goods in New Haven, Connecticut. They were arrested by New Haven Police, and charged with third-degree grand larceny. The two men extradited back to Troy. The pair tried unsuccessfully to sell some of the silver items at several Albany area pawn shops.

I saw this in a story on YNN. The robbery took place sometime late Friday night or early Saturday morning.

The church does have an alarm system but the suspect found a way to get past it. Father Schlossgerg of St. John’s Church said, “some of the stolen vessels were gifts made to the church and gifts made in memory of those we love, and are really hard to replace.”

If you have any information, the Troy Police would like to hear from you. You can contact them by calling 518-270-4421. I don’t steal, but if I did, I don’t think I would steal from a church.
