Twin Falls looking for stolen statues from city's nativity scene
The City of Twin Falls is seeking information regarding two statues that were stolen from the nativity scene on display in the Twin Falls City Park Bandshell. The statues, which resemble lambs laying next to the manger, are each valued at more than $300.
"City of Twin Falls Parks and Recreation Department workers noticed the statues missing on Wednesday, Dec. 26," said Josh Palmer with the City of Twin Falls. "Workers last saw the missing statues one week earlier. The nativity scene is housed in the bandshell and surrounded by a chain link fence that someone must climb to gain access."
According to Palmer, the statues are about 16 inches in height and about 18 inches in length. They are "simulated wood carve." Former Twin Falls City Mayor Howard Allen and his brother Chuck Allen donated the nativity scene 28 years ago to the City of Twin Falls.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the sheep should call the Twin Falls Police Department at 735-4357.
