Bell theft takes toll on owner

January 25, 2011

BLACKSTONE — There was so much snow that Kevin Mahoney didn't notice the item missing from his driveway — at least not until he started to plow.
It was then that Mahoney realized the bell was gone — not just any bell, but a Hooper, a rare piece of 19th century metalsmithing forged into shape by a protege of Paul Revere.
Weighing around 700 pounds, the bronze bell had been severed from a secured length of heavy-duty, steel chain, perhaps with a pair of bolt cutters, around Dec. 16, says Mahoney, of 239 Elm St.
