Christmas Theft in Edina

Happened again. Somebody stole a key piece from a nativity scene in Edina.

It’s a display of Christmas with Mary, and Joseph…baby Jesus in the manger at Citizen Bank. But somebody stole the babe in the manger over the week-end. Second straight year somebody’s done it. The manger scene at the bank is a long tradition — on display each Christmas season for more than 20 years. They got it back last year, acting on a tip — but no word if anyone was arrested. The police chief in Edina asking people to check their garbage cans and look around their property in case the thieves got rid of the figure.
