Police say thieves cracked a safe at a Catholic shrine in the northern suburbs on Christmas Eve.

The money was taken from the Franciscan Friars of Marytown in north Libertyville. Investigators say the thieves made off with about $2,000 from two different safes at the site.

In addition to the December 24th robbery, police say the other safe was broken into on December 17th.
