LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A group of three teenagers was caught on video stealing a vessel of holy water from a Catholic church in Lincoln last weekend.

Lincoln Police Officer Erin Spilker said the thieves took the vat of holy water and the tool used to sprinkle holy water during a Mass in the gym of St. Michael Catholic Church in southeast Lincoln on Saturday.

Officials estimate the stolen items were worth $200.

Police hope to use the video of the theft to identify the juveniles who were involved.
