Stolen Baby Jesus Figure Found Just Before Replacement Swiped

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (December 3, 2012)—A figure of baby Jesus that was taken last year from a Pennsylvania church's Nativity scene was found cradled in the arms of a nearby statue just hours before the replacement figure was swiped from this year’s Nativity scene.

The vintage figurine taken last year from outside of the Central Presbyterian Church in Chambersburg, Pa., was found Sunday in the arms of a bronze Civil War soldier statue across the town square.

Meanwhile a replacement statue provided by a local business for this year’s Nativity scene was stolen Sunday, sometime after services.

Church member Buffy Super called the original figure’s return a "Christmas miracle,” while another member says the church will have to consider securing the figure to deter another theft.
