Box who has been living in Con- nersville while on sabbatical from his previous pastorate in Richmond. Other Indiana Catholic churches hit by theft include parishes in Rensselaer, Lo- gansport, Reynolds and Monti- cello. Investigators have docu- mented more than 20 thefts in Indiana, New York, Pennsylva- nia and Ohio since November 1994. More than 30 chalices including a $2,000 gold chalice that was among 12 chalices taken from St. Joseph's College in Rensselaer -- have been stolen in all. Investigators believe the thefts are the work of one per- son because the same method has been used repeatedly. The thief, who has a strong knowledge of Catholicism, has entered the sacristy or rectory when the priest is celebrating Mass. In some cases the thief also has stolen collection offer- ings. Connersville detective Lt. Joseph Todd, one of the inves- tigators on the case, said Fa- ther Mazzola received the chal- ice as an ordination gift from his sister. Crafted in 1963, it is made of solid silver and inlaid with a diamond engagement ring that belonged to the priest's grandmother. By coincidence, Todd is a St. Gabriel parishioner and a friend of Father Mazzola. The detective and his wife were married by the priest. Investigators have compiled a composite of the suspect, who they believe is a well-dressed man in his 40s with sandy blond and gray hair, close to 6 feet tall and weighing 165 to 180 pounds. The suspect al- ways wears a light brown or gray suit and drives a white, 1980s-model Pontiac Sunbird. -  Todd cautioned Catholics to be aware of all people visiting their church or parish office. He suggests parishioners and staff look carefully at all visi- tors. "We need to make our people aware," he said. "It's not bad to suspect .... If you don't recog- nize a person, walk up to them and ask, 'Can l help you? Who are you? Are you waiting for somebody?"' |ei.,., ,'SGHNELLV!L .ti FOR COMPLETE ELECTRICAL SERVICE i RSCHER ELECTRIC INC. SCHNELLVILLE, IN 389-2418 ............ i 2128 First Ave .............. 8,26-2311 5 N.
