BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - A Roman Catholic priest has recovered fly fishing gear and other personal belongings that were stolen from his outside a Montana church earlier this week.

The Rev. Kirby Longo tells The Montana Standard that a Butte resident found a duffel bag with his missing items on Thursday while walking a dog along an alleyway near St. Ann’s Catholic Church where Longo preaches.

The duffel bag contained goods valued at about $3,000 including two fishing rods and all of Longo’s fishing flies.

Longo says the thieves broke into his Ford Explorer late Tuesday or early Wednesday and packed the stolen items into the duffel bag. He says some of the items inside the recovered duffel were broken.

With his fishing gear returned, Longo went fishing on Thursday.
