The pastor of a Clifton church says a statue of the infant Jesus was stolen from a brand new nativity scene.

It happened at the Church of Saint Clare on Allwood Road. The statue was stolen sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Father Peter Glabik tells News 12  that the outdoor nativity scene was brand new and was only blessed last weekend. He says the police have been notified...

According to abc7n, other churches that were hit include Queen of Peace Church in North Arlington, Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Kearny and St. Cecilia's Church in Kearny.

Many are now left wondering who would steal a Baby Jesus figure.

"People are crazy, and don't have nothing (sic) to do," said one local resident.

Spokesperson for the Newark Archdiocese, Jim Goodness released a statement saying

It is a police matter. We've asked all the parishes to report it to police. It certainly is very distressing that is taking place at this time of year. Our hope is that this is nothing more than a prank. We are hoping police will find out who is doing this.
