Stolen bronze angel statue recovered in alley

.- The statue of an angel that was stolen from a Catholic cemetery in Detroit, Michigan has been found. 

The 350-pound bronze statue was taken from the burial grounds next to Assumption Grotto Catholic Church when thieves cut a hole in the fence surrounding the cemetery to take the statue which was bolted to the ground. Officials estimate that bronze has a street value of $2 per pound.

Phyllis Bausano, the secretary of Assumption Grotto, told the Detroit Free Press that one of the Sisters of the Holy Cross noticed the large statue was missing on Friday, when she went to the grotto to pray.

The statue was recovered on Tuesday morning from an alley behind the church.
