Frederick, MD: Thousands Of Dollars In Copper Stolen From Church

Someone has stolen more than $7,000 of copper from a historic church in Frederick, and it’s the second time the church has been targeted this year.

In total nine copper downspouts lined the exterior of the chapel.

In the past the stain glassed windows have also been broken and in June one of the copper downspouts was torn as if thieves attempted to steal it.

“Is that what we are coming to in this country that people think so little of their churches and their religious institutions that they would deface them like this it's sad. It really is," says Bill Wilson with the Central Maryland Heritage League.
