Nativity scene Jesus returned in Pa., replacement swiped

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

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

The Jesus statue disappeared from the Nativity display last year and was replaced by a local business when the scene was set up a couple weeks ago.

The Chambersburg Public Opinion reports the replacement statue was swiped itself sometime after services on Sunday.

Congregant Buffy Super calls the statue’s return a “Christmas miracle.” Another says the church will have to considering securing the statue to deter theft.
