BREWSTER, N.Y. (AP) - Two gold-plated chalices stolen from a suburban New York church and sold to a scrap metal business have been returned.

The chalices, valued at $2,000, were stolen last Friday from St. Lawrence O'Toole Catholic church in Brewster.

Elmsford Mayor Robert Williams says the chalices were sold to the shop sometime that same day or Saturday.

Williams works at the scrap metal business Brookfield Resource Management but wasn't working when the chalices were sold.

He told the Journal News that Brookfield has a policy of buying items that have been obviously stolen and setting them aside in the hope they can be returned to their rightful owner.

Williams says information about the person who sold the chalices was forwarded to the Putnam County sheriff's office.

The investigation is continuing.

    Public officials and safety advocates worry there will be more drivers high on pot and a big increase in traffic deaths as states liberalize marijuana laws. It's not clear, though, whether those concerns are merited. Researchers are divided on the question. Studies of marijuana's effects show the drug can slow decision-making, decrease peripheral vision and impede multitasking.
