MADISON, AL (WAFF) -
A nativity scene stolen from the front yard of a Madison home was recovered from a Bob Jones High School classroom.
Madison resident, Tamra Koger, reported the theft to police after the nativity scene was stolen in the early morning hours of December 1st. She said her family sets up the set every year in the front yard of her home.
The set, valued at more than $2,000, was discovered in a Bob Jones classroom. Investigators are reviewing video footage to see who stole the nativity scene.
Police are working with the school's resource officer to track down the thief.
A witness said she spotted several teenagers stealing the nativity scene early Saturday morning.
The school said they're not sure when someone came into the school to set it up.
Koger said all of the pieces are back in her possession and other than a scrape or two on Mother Mary, nothing appears to be damaged.
"We were going to put a sign up that said, 'The Grinch stole our nativity scene, but he can't steal our joy. Merry Christmas, everybody,' just to try to make lemonade out of lemons," said Koger.
She said she's decided not to press charges if the thief or thieves are caught, but she is taking extra security measures to make sure it never happens again.
