Three men have been arrested in connection with the theft of three holy chalices, valued at 1,500 euros, and four cured hams from the El Calvario church in Marbella.

The men took advantage of the fact the church was open and took the chalices from a cupboard in the sacristy and the hams from a part of the church used by Cáritas for their blood donation campaign.

All items were recovered from a second-hand shop.
