The Torrington Park and Recreation Department has received the donation of a baby Jesus figurine after the one for the annual Christmas Village nativity scene was stolen.
The original baby Jesus figurine was found to be missing Monday morning as workers at the Torrington Parks and Recreation Department were getting ready to prepare for the display's opening set for Dec. 9.
The baby Jesus was stolen while the display was in storage, so authorities are not exactly sure when the theft happened.
The donation of the baby Jesus figurine should not delay the opening of the Christmas Village, which is entering its 65th year.
As of Wednesday, no arrests have been made in the case. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Torrington Police Department at 860-489-2007.
