FROSTPROOF, Fla. - Sometime between Saturday, Dec. 1 and Monday, Dec. 3, a plastic baby Jesus and a 4-foot by 6-foot plywood donkey were taken from the City of Frostproof nativity scene.
The scene was set up in a field on the corner of B Street West and Scenic Highway, according to a press release from the Polk County Sheriff's Office, and was complete as of 6 p.m. Saturday. Sometime over the weekend, detectives think someone stole two pieces of the nativity set.
There are no pictures of the stolen items but the release says the baby Jesus is a plastic doll and the donkey is painted realistically.
"The city would like the stolen items returned to the Frostproof City Hall at 111 1st St. W., Frostproof," the release said. Otherwise, deputies are seeking the public's help.
According to The Ledger , the nativity scene was set up since before Thanksgiving, and this is the first year that something has been stolen from the display.
