Money Stolen from Church on Christmas

NEW YORK (AP) - A couple of grinches may not have robbed a Queens church of its holiday cheer but they definitely got away with its money.

Police say two men entered Saint Mel's Roman Catholic Church in Flushing, broke into the safe and ran off with the cash about 9:30 Christmas morning. More than $20,000 in donations for needy children is missing.

The crooks fled in a sport utility vehicle. A parishioner saw the getaway and wrote down the SUV's license plate number, but no arrests have been made as of early Tuesday morning.

Parishioners want to know who would rob a church on Christmas Day.
