Statue of Jesus donated by N.J. couple stolen from NYC church [VIDEO]
A statue of Jesus Christ donated by a New Jersey couple was stolen from a Brooklyn church over the weekend.
Officials from Saints Peter and Paul Church released security footage Thursday hoping someone could recognize the thieves.
The video shows a group of people taking the “Sacred Heart of Jesus” Saturday from the Williamsburg church, located at 82 S. 2nd Street in Brooklyn. The statue sat on a pedestal outside the church.
The 4-foot figurine was donated by an Oak Ridge couple, Kathleen and George Damerel, in 2012 to replaced a similar statue that was reportedly stolen just a month before Christmas that year, according to CBS.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the church.
