Ohio Thief Steals Baby Jesus, Opens New Front In War On Christmas

A Grinch ransacked a nativity scene, stealing a baby Jesus figurine and other religious items which were replaced with a “tombstone-shaped Halloween decoration with the word ‘R.I.P.’ written on the front,” according to Ohio cops.

A resident of South Euclid, a Cleveland suburb, contacted police Friday night to report that a thief had targeted the nativity scene in his front yard. Along with stealing baby Jesus, the perp swiped cow, donkey, and lamb figurines.

Victim John Carlo, 39, told cops he found the “R.I.P.” tombstone where the figurines had been.

Police are investigating the December 2 crèche incursion.
