SAINT-RAYMOND, Que. -- Officials in a town northwest of Quebec City say they are puzzled as to how someone managed to steal the its 2,000 pound bell.

Saint-Raymond spokeswoman Genevieve Faucher says the bell has been owned by the town of Saint-Raymond since 1904 and was used to alert the town when there was a fire.

When the town hall was rebuilt, the bell was relocated and used as a monument in front of the new city hall and fire hall.

Officials noticed Monday it was missing and believe it was stolen sometime last weekend by thieves thinking they could sell it for scrap metal.

Faucher says for the town, there's a heritage value that's worth more.
