BRONXVILLE, N.Y. - Bronxville police are asking for the public’s help as they continue investigating a pair of suspects that made off with thousands of dollars from a Catholic Church over the holidays.

During the 5 p.m. mass on New Year’s Eve, shortly after the traditional collection, two “well-dressed” suspects snuck behind the alter at St. Joseph’s Church, into the sacristy room, stealing the bag of cash before it could be secured in a safe.

The incident was documented on surveillance video, which police are currently evaluating.

It is believed that as much as $2,000 may have been taken. According to a CBS News report, there is typically someone there to secure the bag, but in this instance the room was vacant. Officials from the church could not be reached for comment.

As the investigation continues, police are asking anyone with information about the New Year’s Eve heist to contact detectives at (914) 337-0500 or detsgt@vobpd.com.
