A man who admitted he lied to U.S. Customs officials to try to conceal $130,000 worth of religious relics stolen from France has been sentenced to three years' probation and fined $3,000.

Sebastian Zegrean, a Romanian citizen working in the United States as a security guard, had sent the package from Lille, France, to his home in Reading, Pa.When authorities X-rayed a box he was carrying, they found three sacred objects that were later returned to the Church of Saint Martin in Le Cateau.

They included a bronze and glass reliquary from the early 19th century. Roman Catholic authorities say it contains a bone fragment of St. Maxellendis, a French girl martyred around 670 A.D.
