LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Authorities say someone stole a crucifix valued at $4,0 from a Roman Catholic church in Lincoln.

A priest told officers the gold- and silver-plated crucifix and a book of readings were missing when he arrived Thursday morning at St. Patrick Church in the Havelock neighborhood in north Lincoln.

Authorities say the theft occurred between 9:30 p.m. Wednesday and 6:30 a.m. Thursday. The church is left open through the evening for people who wish to pray there.
