WESTMORELAND COUNTY (KDKA) – Two Mt. Pleasant families are baffled, after someone stole the baby Jesus from their nativity scene.

The thefts happened on Connellsville Road.

“I went to get my mail, and when I came back and looked at the nativity, the baby was gone,” Valarie Goodwin said.

Stealing baby Jesus is so widespread, that municipalities, churches, and homeowners are now using GPS devices and security cameras for security.

One nativity scene is even protected by a metal screen.

Goodwin found a stand-in baby Jesus, she’s just hoping the person responsible for the theft, will return the baby unharmed.
