Baby Jesus stolen from 2 Nashville nativity scenes

Posted: Updated:

A pair of baby Jesus statues have gone missing from nativity scenes in the front yards of two homes on Christmas Eve.

Both were stolen from mangers set up across the street from one another in east Nashville, and the homeowners are so outraged that they called police to try and figure out who did it.

"I hope whoever took it can live with the thought that they took it from someone else. They might have took the baby Jesus from the nativity scene, but they haven't took the Christianity and what Christmas is all about. That's Jesus, and it's still in my heart," said theft victim Cynthia Maynard.

One of the victims said she simply wants the baby Jesus returned to her front yard. She said the nativity was something her grandfather passed down to her and has a lot of sentimental value.
