(SAN FRANCISCO) Somebody stole three bells from an historic San Francisco church over the weekend. The bells were cast in Moscow and given by Czar Alexander III to the American church in 1888. The bells were taken from Holy Trinity Cathedral, which is undergoing renovation following a fire last Easter. Holy Trinity is reportedly the oldest Russian Orthodox cathedral in the United States.
