800 Pound Antique Bell Missing From Elks Lodge in Ballard

posted by Amanda J - 

According to Kiro 7 the 800 pound bell went missing sometime this past weekend. The brass bell was over 130 years old so it is rather heartbreaking to hear that someone sold pieces of the bell to The Recycling Depot in Georgetown for $200. 

A search is still on going for the rest of the bell, if you know anything about the theft please contact the Elks Lodge or the Seattle Police Department.

Someone stole our 130yr old bell this past weekend. PER @joetiffany8986 has informed us that it was presented to our Lodge and George Boxrz by the Fremont Fire Marshal many years ago. It has a long history with Our Lodge. If you have any information, please contact the Lodge Office or the Officers. Fingers crossed that it is returned!
