      Police in Fredericksburg are investigating a very scrooge-like theft.

      Authorities say someone stole the baby Jesus figure from a Nativity Scene in Central Park, in the 1000 block Carl D. Silver Parkway.

      A maintenance employee for Rappaport Companies discovered the theft.

      Residents are hoping the thief gets a Christmas spirit and returns the stolen Baby Jesus.

      "I think it's horrible - never mind the religious part," says Meghan Borger a Fredericksburg Resident. "They should just leave it alone."

      The investigation is ongoing.
