Police find stolen car meant to raise money for future priests

New Mexico News

GALLUP, N.M. (KRQE) – A classic sports car meant to pay for future priests’ education has been found. Police say it was found June 5 just north of Gallup with minor damage. It was first reported that the Sacred Heart Cathedral in Gallup was planning on fixing up a white 1966 Plymouth Sport Fury and raffling it off to pay for seminary tuition for future priests.

The trailer was secured to a railing in the parking lot but early Friday morning two thieves hooked it up to a dark Chevy Silverado and pulled away with enough force to break the lock.
