Simone Brinkmann-Robinson is a temple member.  She believes several men were involved in the theft of the bowl, based on the weight of the thing, but also based on what a neighbor said he saw in the early morning hours of last Thursday.

BRINKMANN-ROBINSON:  "He saw a man pulling a cart with a very heavy, round object in it.  He couldn't identify the object, but when we showed him a picture, he recognized it."

Brinkmann-Robinson says the bowl is worth $15,000 with the price of copper being what it is.  She fears the bowl will be melted down at a metal recycling yard.  She says the theft brings bad karma to the people responsible.  She says additional bad karma can be avoided if they return the bowl.
