Bishop’s Home Robbed – Bad Move, Bad Guys! — Dave’s Diary

Wow! How many points will this cost you with the Man upstairs!  (Truth is – Forgiveness is there for EVERYBODY)

But C’mon!  Robbing the bishop’s house! I’m not judging, I’m just saying! Here’s the official press release. Keep your eyes and ears open and maybe we can return the possessions to Yakima Bishop Joseph J. Tyson.

bold burglar broke into the residence of Bishop Tyson this morning, making off with computer equipment, cuff links, a watch and a gold ring set with an amethyst, one of the symbols of the bishop’s unity with his flock.

“I may have scared the thief away as I drove up to the house,” said Bishop Tyson, who lives near St. Paul Cathedral in Yakima.  The bishop had not set the security alarm for the residence, as he was running a short errand.

The ring, one of two owned by the bishop, is both a symbol of unity and authority.  The sides of the ring are decorated with crosses and scroll work.  Other items taken include a Macbook Pro laptop, an iPad, an iPhone 4S, and several sets of cuff links, the most distinctive of which are black with the image of a chalice.  Also taken was a gold-plated Invicta watch, a recent gift from the Bishop’s parents marking his 25th anniversary as a priest.

Yakima police are investigating the burglary.  The Diocese is offering a $250 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the burglar. For more information, contact Monsignor Robert Siler at the Diocese, 509-965-7117.
