Three people from Wayne County have been charged with a strange theft.

They're accused of stealing a 100-year-old bell from a church in the Rosewood community on Dec. 30.

Authorities say Heather Barnes, Santonio James and Brett Warren then tried to sell the bell for scrap metal.

Someone got suspicious when they saw the bell at a local metal dealer. The slightly damaged bell was returned to the church.

The bell is worth about $2,000.
