Found! Extremely Heavy Bell

A historic bell that was stolen on Sunday from the garden at St. Mary's Cathedral on Gough Street has been recovered. The bell, which is considered to be a "priceless artifact," weighs several thousand pounds. Police received a tip yesterday about the whereabouts of the bell, which had turned up across the street from a scrap yard near Ninth and Pine streets in West Oakland. No arrests have been made in connection with the case. [SF Appeal]
