Baby Jesus gets GPS
Baby Jesus being stolen from the nativity. It's a crime that happens every Christmas.
One west suburban church is fighting back with a GPS tracker that could lead police, as if guided by a bright star above, directly to the Son of God.
The GPS devices are being offered by BrickHouse Security, a New York-based company lending the hardware and tracking service free of charge to churches and synagogues for the holiday season.
Other churches have installed security cameras to protect their holiday displays.
Stealing the baby Jesus. Sounds funny but really isn't. Those displays are expensive.
