Hallelujah! Baby Jesus Figure Returned To Texas Nativity Scene

Updated:
BRAZORIA, Texas (AP) _ A figure of the baby Jesus has been returned, a year after it was stolen from a nativity scene.

The figure and the manger that held it were stolen last December from the display off Highway 36 in Brazoria, about 55 miles south of Houston.

The figure mysteriously returned sometime last week.

Resident Bill James said he and his family noticed on Dec. 16 that strong winds had knocked over the figures in the display, and went over to fix them.

``When I went over to stand them up, I saw that the Jesus was back in the manger,'' he said. ``It's the same one that was there before.''

Police have no suspects or leads in the theft from the display, which the Brazoria Chamber of Commerce has used for years.

Mayor Ken Corley said residents are just glad the figure's back.

``Everything is fitting now that the nativity scene is complete,'' he said.
