FARGO (KFGO) – Paul Braun, communications director for the Diocese of Fargo tells KFGO News that a statue at St. Mary’s Cathedral in downtown Fargo has been stolen.
The statue was taken from the rectory yard outside the cathedral. The Diocese says church surveillance footage video indicates a man drove up in a car around 2 a.m. this (Monday) morning, grabbed the Mary statue, loaded it in the vehicle, and drove off going west.
This isn’t the first time the church has experienced theft and vandalism. This past January, the “Christ in Death” statue was damaged by vandals and two years ago, another statue of Jesus was spray-painted black.
Braun says more details of the theft should be released later today.
