Police are on the lookout for a man who stole from a prominent Catholic church on the Upper East Side. Detectives are searching for a man distinctly dressed in a fur-lined floor-length coat, who stole four brass candlestick holders from Saint Monica's Church on East 79th Street. Each candlestick is said to be work $3,000.

The 142 year-old parish is often frequented by prominent cardinals, including the head of the New York Archdiocese, Timothy Dolan.

The NYPD is still working to identify the suspect and is asking for the public's help. Anyone with information should contact Crimestoppers at 800-577-TIPS or send a text to CRIMES then enter TIP 577
