Sheboygan church elder charged with stealing hand bells

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WTAQ) - An elder at a church in Sheboygan is charged with felony theft, for allegedly stealing bells from the church and pawning them off for cash. 

57-year-old David Neese is accused of taking four cases of hand bells in April from the First Presbyterian Church in Sheboygan. They were valued at just over $10,000. 

Church officials said they learned about the thefts from a California man who bought two cases of the bells on E-Bay, and saw the church's name on the labels. Police traced other stolen bells to pawn shops in Appleton and Minnesota. 

Neese is free after posting a $300 bond.

The status of his case will be reviewed on Monday. A preliminary hearing is currently set for the day before Thanksgiving.
